Is “shlanket” a word?

This versatile, generously sized, rectangle shawl pattern can be worn multiple ways and is large enough to be used as a personal travel blanket. The pattern is worked using a deceptively simple knitting technique known as entrelac to create, what looks like, interlaced rectangles.

When the pattern is paired with a gradual color-shifting yarn, the rectangles transition from one shade to the next. The yarn does all of the color work so you can just enjoy the knitting.
