Pair the neck warmer or scarf with a long sleeve shirt and jeans in the cool autumn air or tuck it in under your coat to keep your neck cozy and warm in winter.

I have had the pleasure of teaching this pattern twice now: at my local yarn shop, Stitch Your Art Out, and at this year's Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival. My students were great and got the hang of the pattern after a little practice. As with knit entrelac, I think Tunisian crochet entrelac takes a bit of time to get the hang of it and then, after a few repeats of the pattern rows, you begin to understand and memorize the technique. The pattern includes several close-up shots to guide you.
Neck Warmer: 8 x 31.5 inches
Scarf: 7 x 72 inches
Neck Warmer: Noro Silk Garden Sock (1 skein)
Scarf: Noro Kureyon Sock (2 skeins)
any fingering weight yarn with long color changes will show off the entrelac pattern nicely
Gauge is not critical for this project
Size 5.5mm (I) for foundation chain
Size 4.0mm (G) for pattern
Because of the yarn weight and small number of stitches on the hook, you can use regular crochet hooks rather than Tunisian hooks for this project.
Locking stitch markers, darning needle,
optional for neck warmer: sewing thread, hand sewing needle, 4 buttons about 1 inch in diameter.
