I am posting my entrelac scarf pattern for those who want to take this one on as a holiday gift project.Â I created this pattern from several other entrelac patterns but found that this particular size base triangles and blocks works best for Noro silk garden’s color changes.
I highly recommend doing the smaller size if you want to get it done it time!
