Entrelac Scarf

Lion Brand® Amazing®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased.
sk2p (slip-knit 2 together-pass slipped st over) A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle as if to knit, and slip the next st from the left needle to the right needle.
2. Knit the next 2 sts together.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the slipped st (the 2nd st on right needle) up and over the k2tog (first st on right needle) and off the needle - 2 sts decreased.

NOTES:

1. Entrelac knitting consists of rows of triangles and squares that are worked in short rows. Short rows are rows that are worked over a portion of the sts in a row, leaving the remaining sts unworked. To work short rows, the pattern instructions will tell you to 'turn' before you reach the end of the row.
2. Follow the instructions for each row carefully and be sure to keep track of your place in the pattern.
3. Stitch markers are used to make it easier to see the beg and end of each short row triangle or square. Move the position of the markers following the pattern instructions, being careful to move the beg of the row marker or the end of row marker as specified in the pattern. Use different color markers to make it easier to distinguish the beg of the row marker from the end of the row marker.
4. The Scarf begins with a section of foundation triangles, then half triangles and squares are worked. To finish the Scarf, a section of finishing triangles is worked.
5. Unless otherwise noted, slip all sl sts as if to purl.

Entrelac Scarf Reviewed by nancy gibney on 2013-01-23 ****
I made the scarf in "Glacier bay" color, which is a lot of dark purples and blues. Next time i will use a black yarn for the edging and single crochet the edging instead of k1,p1. I will definitely make the scarf again. Suggestion: how about an entrelac vest pattern? thanks.
