All you need is one hank of Fantasy Naturale and size 7 or 8 needles. The pattern is presented as a downloadable link below. So get your materials ready for a fun fast engaging project. Plus once you learn entrelac you can try so many great designs.

Takes less than 1 hank of Fantasy Naturale. I suggest you pick a print shade, as its more fun in this design than a solid color. Download the FREE pattern and get started.
