Our Just Triangles Entrelac Scarf in Flax Down modernizes traditional entrelac knitting with a blown-up scale and a pared-down design. Instead of lots of little squares, you knit just the first and last rows of entrelac and end up with eleven big triangles in all. Pretty fascinating and definitely fun!

Just Triangles Entrelac Scarf in Flax Down | Purl Soho

Our original Just Triangles Entrelac Scarf was knit up in a lightweight warm-weather yarn, and so, this winter we used Purl Soho’s cozy new Flax Down. A blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen, Flax Down has a rich and earthy look, a dramatic drape and a soft and downy feeling, just right for this season’s most special scarf!
