Knitting this shawl was a bit of a challenge. The pattern is call Entrelac and it is made up of tiers of blocks that are set on their points and are diamond shaped. Each block is knitted separately and jointed to its neighbor as it is being knit. This shawl is almost 6 feet long and took forever to finish. I used a yarn made in Japan called Noro. Noro yarn is handed dyed silk, mohair & wool and comes in beautiful colour combinations. I finished off the shawl by crocheting a fringe which I love the look of.
