Hi Ladies,
Does anyone have a pattern for a scarf done up in a Entrelec Stitch pattern? Or has anyone tried this stitch pattern. It looks confusion. Wanda

I got the pattern out of the book Scarf Style and used the entrelec pattern. It's not extremely difficult, but it is one (at least for me) where I had to knit and read the pattern at the same time. When I first read the pattern I was trying hard to visualize it coming together in my head but was stumped. Cast-on and give it a try...you'll probably get the "Light Bulb" moment as soon as you see it form on your needles.

Good luck!

Just follow the pattern. The Danica Scarf Amie linked to above is a good starter pattern, as is the Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style. It looks much harder than it is!

Anything is only worth what one person is willing to pay for it and one person is willing to sell it for.

When I get over my current socks fetish (not likely), I will practice entrelac by knitting a couple washcloths using cotton Sugar 'n' Cream yarn. (I did this to learn the Eastern purl method. After all, who cares how a washcloth looks? It's cleaning the dishes.)

Ceil - that is exactly what I plan to do soon -- try out Entrelec knitting by doing a dish cloth. Practied a few mitered squares with dish cloths, too.

I, too, an stuck in a sock fetish.

What is "Entrelec Stitch Pattern"? Is "Entrelec" somebody's name?

The only "Entrelec" that I know of are industrial products manufactured by ABB.

Google "entrelac" and "knit"; or look here:

Hi Nancy,

Thank you for the link.

"Entrelec" & "Entrelac" are totally 2 different things.

I love the Lady Eleanor pattern. You can made it narrower and not as long if you want more of a scarf then a shawl. Entrelac is trusting the instructions and not your eyes, when the design starts to flow the eyes and brain will connect and you will say wow.
