unikatissima entrelac 2.0 knit-purl

I really love entrelac patterns, but when working them I get bored much too fast to be able to knit an item in entrelac pattern (usually after the first two rows ;-)).
Then I thought: ‘Who says that I have to knit stockinette or garter stitch only?’ and designed an entrelac pattern (PDF ~670 KB) with 12 different, mostly traditional knit-purl patterns.

I’ve even been able to knit a whole scarf in this pattern which never happened before ;-))

entrelac 2.0 knit-purl (PDF ~670 KB) looks beautiful from both sides, and because most of the proposed patterns don’t curl it works wonderfully ;-)

Here you can see that the scarf has a very dynamic look and it was absolutely not boring because I considered for every square anew which of the 12 patterns to use.
Additionally you can see very well that the same pattern looks a little different, depending on the fact that you knit it in a forth or back entrelac row (there are e.g. two garter stitch squares, two stockinette squares and two seed stitch squares).

On this photo I folded the scarf in another way – you see how proud I am about ;-))

Here you can see how good the patterns match.

In the instruction I added for every of the 12 patterns a diagram, a text description and a photo to show how it should look.

Doesn’t look bad, does it? ;-)
