Edgy, Easiest Entrelac Ever with Laura Barker
Have you been wanting to learn entrelac, or tried and been confused by triangles and different slants? The Edgy scarf takes full advantage of the intrinsic shape of the rectangles to create a zig-zag edge, with no need for triangles. The rectangles are all worked in k1, p1 ribbing, and stitches are picked up using my 'double half stitch pickup' method for a fully reversible scarf. Because there is no right side or wrong side, all rectangles slant in the same direction, so most of them are identical, and the few rectangles with slight variations are easy to learn. If you want to master the basic structure of entrelac, this is the easiest way! Edgy debuted at Rhinebeck 2014 and quickly shot to #1 on Ravelry’s “Hot Right Now” list. Join the fun.
__This scarf may be knit in any weight yarn from fingering to worsted, using approximately 400 yds, regardless of weight; a yarn that has some color change is recommended.
__Because both entrelac and ribbing tend to make your fabric more dense, go up a needle size or two for a nice drape; 3.5mm/US4 for fingering weight up to 5.5mm/US9 for worsted weight.
