Entrelac often gets its visual interest from color-changing yarns, but this shawl uses a single subly shading colorway of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend to set off a lacy patchwork design. The flame motif changes directions on each row, dancing back and forth, and small applied flame triangles on each end.
