Entretemps is a collection of a hat, shawl or scarf worked in entrelac with textured squares.

The entretemps hat is worked in squares that have the same easily memorized stitch pattern made of twisted ribbing on a garter stitch background. The use of increases, decreases and the joins of the squares give the hat a dynamic third dimension with playful, somewhat organic shapes and interesting textures.
The stitch pattern is both charted and written.
