En­trelac scarf

SLANT­ING STRIPES make an im­pact on this uni­sex scarf de­sign by Nicki Mer­rall. It is knit­ted in rows us­ing the en­trelac tech­nique. Stitches are cast on for the length of the scarf, and then the tri­an­gles are worked one at a time along one side, be­fore chang­ing di­rec­tion and work­ing the tri­an­gles along the sec­ond side. The tri­an­gles are striped, with the num­ber of stripes in each colour chang­ing along the length, so that pink is the dom­i­nant colour at one end and grey at the other. Fi­nally, an i-cord edge is worked around all four sides.

STITCH PAT­TERNS CRO­CHET CAST ON METHOD

Make a slip­knot and place on a 4mm cro­chet hook. Place the cro­chet hook in the right hand and a 4mm knit­ting nee­dle in the left hand. Hold the yarn as if to cro­chet. *Place the knit­ting nee­dle over the yarn and with the hook draw the yarn over the nee­dle and through the slip­knot. You should have one stitch on the knit­ting nee­dle. Take the yarn to the back be­tween the knit­ting nee­dle and cro­chet hook. Rep from * un­til you have one fewer than the de­sired num­ber of stitches on the knit­ting nee­dle. Trans­fer the loop on the hook to the knit­ting nee­dle.

PRO­VI­SIONAL CRO­CHET CAST ON METHOD

Work as for the cro­chet cast-on method, us­ing a waste yarn. Rep from * un­til you have the de­sired num­ber of stitches on the knit­ting nee­dle. Pass a lock­able stitch marker through the loop on the hook.
