It is not so very hard to knit this entrelac scarf. I worked for two days in the morning. This scarf has so many attaching knots. It looks discouraging! But I am pleased with the result.
Garter stitch entrelac scarf is not as beautiful as stockinette stitch scarf. :(
Entrelac is a very addictive technique once you get into it! It seem complicated at first because there are so many different pieces required to form the knit fabric. But once you've done it a time or two you'll understand how it works and it will become much easier for you. You could do each square in a different color if you really wanted to, or knit the whole piece in one color.
Here are some pictures of entrelac products for reference. Harmonious colour combinations make your products look more beautiful. ^^
