I Tweeted and Facebooked about this back in December but realized I never gave it the proper blog post it deserved!
I was honored to be contacted by Staci Perry of verypink.com asking if she could film an entrelac tutorial based on my Entrelac Scarf Pattern. Those of you familiar with Staci’s tutorials know how wonderful they are!
If you are new to entrelac knitting (or intimidated by it!) this video will make you an entrelac pro! You can download my pattern and follow along as Staci walks you through every step!
And please visit Staci’s website for more wonderful tutorials!

40 years of being afraid to try entrelac then found you and also YouTube and before I knew it, I was knitting entrelac. Amazing.
I hope everyone will give entrelac a try. If I could, you can!!Reply

In the pattern instructions for the Tier 1 Right Side Triangle (Row 3) it says to sl 1, p5, k2tog, turn. In Staci’s demo, she does a p2tog. Which is correct? The rest of the odd numbered rows also say to k2tog. Thx.Reply

This is personal preference! I chose to have the k2togs at the end of those purl rows to form a tiny garter-stitch ridge along each side. If you choose to do a p2tog like Staci does, you will not have the “bumps” along the sides of your scarf.
So again, it’s personal preference. I like the little bumps as a design feature but some people don’t and that’s ok! Whatever you choose to do, just be sure to do the same thing on BOTH sides of the scarf to make sure the edges match!
Hope this helps!

Allison, thank you so much for getting back with me so quickly. I will follow your lead since you designed the scarf. I just wanted to make sure there was not a change to the pattern from the first time I printed it out. And thank you so much for sharing your talents.

I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues wioth
your blog. It looks like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else pleaze provide feedback and let me know if this is happening
to them too? This might be a issue wifh my
internet browser because I’ve had thiis happen previously.
