I was admiring a wrap/shawl frock on knitty.com knit using the entrelac method, and was quite intimidated by how difficult it looked.  I took a crafts.com e-class on how to do it, and was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't too hard after all!  I used Noro yarn, and I am quite pleased on how this infinity scarf came out!  I'm convinced Noro was made for entrelac, or vice versa...

Very nice scarf. You are right that yarn is perfect for entrelac.

This is lovely! You are right that Noro really suits the entrelac.

I've never tried entrelac, it has always looked a little too difficult. Maybe I'll check out that e-class!

Nice job!  And that's lovely yarn; you're right it seems perfect for the technique.

I've been intimidated by entrelac -- I need to tackle it like you did!

Nice!  I'm glad you used Noro.  I bought quite a bit of it  Roll Eyes in preparation for making an Entrelac shawl.  Now I'm sure it'll look good!

I'm not a real knitter, so I don't know anything about this pattern, but the results are beautiful.  A great looking scarf.
