Motley Entrelac Buttonhole Shawl
I’ve spent this afternoon finishing my latest knitting project, the Motley entrelac buttonhole shawl. I have yet to block it but wanted to take some pictures before I lost the late afternoon light.
I found the pattern on Knitty and immediately fell in love how the color-changing yarn worked with the entrelac style and the superfluous buttonholes. I used one colorway of Lion Brand Amazing yarn called “Arcadia”. It’s full of teals and greens, plums and oranges - perfect for fall in Wisconsin. A mix of wool and acrylic, this triangular shawl is super warm and should prove quite easy to care for.
The pattern was fantastic! I’m a knitter of fickle disposition - too much repetition makes me bored, but too many changes in pattern disrupts my zen-like knitting groove. This pattern was a PERFECT knit for me! The pattern is quite simple enough to memorize, and once I got the crochet-hook buttonhole technique down, I was able to fly through this knit. Repetitive enough to help find my zen, and the entrelac and buttonholes were able to hold my attention ‘til the end. I highly recommend this pattern to anyone with a similar knitting personality.
