I've got a question about blocking for those who used SWS.  Did you do a full soak of your scarf and then pin it into place or did you pin it into place first and then just lightly spray it with water?
I also wanted to thank tragicheroine for getting this started.  This scarf pattern never appealed to me until I saw yours and like many of you said, it's like SWS was created especially for entrelac.
I've started mine in Natural Earth, but after seeing knittastic09's spumoni scarf, I know I have to make one in that colourway too.
This is one of the most fun things I've knit in a long time!

I soaked it and layed it out, but did not pin it.

the scarf is gorgeous.  I had to pick up the Interweave Knits this month just for the kick-ass entrelac sock pattern by Eunny Jang! Can't wait to make it.

first, thanks to everyone who helped me out with my last question!
and second, i have a new problem/question. i've been busy and haven't gotten very far in my knitting, but i have a 4 day weekend and decided to pick this up again.

so i'm knitting a "left edge triangle" and these are the instructions:

Row 12 [RS]: K8.
Row 13 [WS]: Pfb, p6, p2tog.
Row 14 [RS]: K9.
Row 15 [WS]: Pfb, p7, p2tog. Do not turn work. 10 sts on right needle.

i just K8, but now if i continue and Pfb, i'll be connecting the "left edge triangle" with the "second square" and apparently creating a big hole in the middle of the scarf. as far as i know, i haven't done anything wrong but this doesn't seem right. here's some pictures to clarify what i mean...

what i currently have, with 8 stitches of the "left edge triangle"

and here's what it looks like if i Pfb

It seems like you didn't have enough stitches on the middle green square, because you should end the new red triangle at the end of that square. They should both have 10, I think. Once you do all 10 repeats, you pick up your next square off the top of the green square.

What I would do is, count the number of stitches in your green square, if its not the correct number, rip back and pick up the stitches from the beige square again.

I'm not sure how clear that explaination is, so you should go ask at the knitalong:

ah that makes sense maitai113. you're probably right, too, because i hadn't worked on it in a few weeks and probably marked the wrong place in the pattern or something. stupid me.
but alas, i already ripped back to the green square to start this triangle over. and i didn't know about that knitalong, i'll join that now!

Another good yarn for this project is Rowan Tapestry. It's a bit thinner, but 2 skeins got me one about 7 inches by 60 or so.

I never thought of doing entrelac in SWS.  I love the idea!  Your scarf is fabulous!
