2019 01 13: I have clarified the Pickup and Purl; and Pickup and Knit from Left to Right instructions.
I have also added simple instructions in the 8 stitch pattern to create three stitch button holes to make the scarf into a cowl.

2018 01 28: Update to 6 stitch entrelac - The upper triangle was written incorrectly, stating to pickup and knit 8 stitches. It should have said 6 stitches.

I am just loving using Mille Colori in entrelac. The colours are stunning and the blocks of entrelac just show them off so well. (The results were just as stunning as the slouchy handwarmers in knit and purl)

My original plan is to knit up 3 skeins, but I think I will need 4. The entrelacs are 8 stitches wide, but you can just as easily make them 6 or 7 for a narrower scarf. Alternately, instead of 3 entrelacs you could do 2 wider ones.

Something I did for this design which is atypical of entrelac, is to add two stitches of garter stitch on each end. This makes a nice edge for the increases and decreases, and finishes it of nicely.
