Blossoming Poppies Entrelac Cowl

Entrelac knitting patterns just don't get more lovely and wearable than this.

For a beautifully feminine take on entrelac, try out the Blossoming Poppies Entrelac Cowl! The multicolored nature of the yarn makes this knit cowl truly look like a work of art, but we all know that entrelac is complicated enough without adding colorwork into the mix! This stunning knit cowl is really best for advanced knitters only, since it uses skills that are bound to befuddle beginners. While we love the colorway of Caron Cakes yarn used in this example, it would look just as beautiful in any other color scheme!
