Because you can always use more Noro projects.
The pattern calls for 3 balls of Noro Silk Garden or Kureyon. It's like this yarn was made for the Entrelac technique - the long lengths of colour work out brilliantly. I recommend the Silk Garden since it drapes nicely and (newsflash!) stands up very well to a delicate machine wash. You could use Taiyo, too. Any Noro yarn, really.
In addition to a variation for a wider shawl verison, the pattern includes detailed notes to help you to learn how to work Entrelac - and once you get going, it's easy and fun. Suitable for knitters who are confident with increasing and decreasing.
Pattern available on Patternfish and Ravelry.
