Entrelac Scarf

This was my first attempt at entrelac knitting and it was surprisingly easy. It looks so wonky until you get into the second or third tier. Even then, I often had to reassess to make sure I was on track. I used size 5 mm. needles and Paton's SWS in "Natural Earth". This yarn was made for entrelac knitting. It gives you these beautiful colour gradations at just the right time so you don't have to mess around with changing yarn colours all the time. It's a luxurious 70% wool, 30% soy blend and I loved the feel of it while knitting. I've decided to leave it all puffy rather than blocking it for now. I've seen it done both ways. I've already bought more SWS in "Natural Pink". I may add pompoms to the ends of the next one.
