When I saw the new Chroma yarns from Knit Picks, I knew that it would be perfect for entrelac. It’s a 70/30 merino/nylon single ply yarn with a very long, slow color repeat. It comes in 16 color combinations; this one is called Midwinter.
I liked the look of this yarn so much that I designed a simpler version of my Infinity Entrelac Infinity Scarf for Chroma Worsted. It’s big, soft and squishy, and I absolutely love it.
This is my new Lacy Entrelac Infinity Scarf, and the pattern is now available for purchase through the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. It’s priced at $3.99.
I’ve also added instructions for this lace as a bonus to the original Infinity pattern. If you purchased Infinity online, you should have received a message that the pattern has been updated.
I had some Chroma Worsted left over, so I am knitting Athena again. I’ve knit so many of these, but they’ve all gone out as gifts. Maybe this one will be mine?
Oh, one more thing: I’m having a drawing for some greeting cards and tape measures over at the Lantern Moon blog. Stop on by for a chance to win!
Oh mine, this indeed is absolutely gorgeous. Love the long flowing colors. The lace is perfect bonus. Clever. You have done it again 😀 It does make a perfect gift. Congratulation on another beautiful launch!
It looks beautiful! Congrats on the new pattern. 🙂
Congratulations on the new pattern! I love the colours in the Chroma and you’re right, it’s perfect for entrelac.
Is it as soft as it looks? I will have to wait until next fall to make one as my list of projects is a mile long!
It *is* as soft as it looks; it was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Gorgeous! One of these days I need to try entrelac.
Me too! It’s so cool-looking. Especially in a yarn that gorgeous.
Nice job once again, Michele!
Ooh, so pretty and soft looking!
Don’t know whether I like the design or the colors best. Gorgeous!
It looks great! The pattern/yarn combo is perfect…excellent job! I’m sure this is going to be successful for you at Knit Picks. Congrats!
I really like the colors, they are perfect! Great job on the new pattern opportunity too!
Beautiful! Our furnace is kaput right now – a nice, squishy warm scarf would be perfect! Thinking I might need to add this pattern to my queue!
The colors are so pretty! Your colors!
OMG — That is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lovely colors! Definitely tempted to try entrelac now!
I have been wanting to try their new yarn it comes in great colors. I just learned Entrelac & I love it your scarf is beautiful.
Love how that came out! Especially the addition of the lace panels. I might have to get some of that to do the Fan Shawl in – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/panda-silk-dk-fan-shawl.
You make Entrelac so enticing. I swear I’ll try it if my life every slows down!
In the meantime, I’ve been dealing with a number of disasters, one of which is the loss of my domain name. I’m starting over at http://www.caffeinegirlknits.com. See ya there, I hope!
