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

The entretemps scarf is made out of squares that have the same stitch pattern with a seed stitch motif on a purled background. The use of increases, decreases and the joins of the squares give the shawl a dynamic third dimension with playful, somewhat organic shapes and interesting textures.
The stitch pattern is charted and written.
