Entrelac!

 

rockin' entrelacEntrelac is a neato, faux-basket-woven effect you can achieve in your knitting with a little fancy short row action. The word “Entrelac”, I believe, comes from the French word for “cool looking and much easier than you think.” Something like that, anyway.

Come learn this fascinating technique with the entrelacingest gal we know, Ms. Michele Bernstein!

Entrelac
$20 With Michele Bernstein
It looks so complicated, but it’s simpler than you think. You’ll learn all about base and finishing triangles, side triangles, left and right leaning rectangles, and best of all, how to purl back backwards without turning your work. Amaze and astound your friends, look clever, and knit up a pretty piece of interlaced knitting! We’ll knit a sample piece that you can continue as a scarf or sew up to use as a small bag.
Date/Time: Monday, Feb 6, 6-8pm
Materials – either bring your own or before/during class get 20% off on: 240 yards worsted or DK weight yarn with a long slow color change, like Crystal Palace Mochi Plus, or two coordinating colors of worsted weight yarn. 16” circular needles in the appropriate size for your yarn (It will be easier to learn with a thicker yarn.)
Includes: Athena Cowl pattern by Michele Bernstein. (We will NOT be working on this cowl in class, but it will be a great next step for your new entrelac skills!)

  1. No worries on getting 17 st/4 inches; you just want to get a gauge that’s appropriate for your particular yarn!

  2. What is the incredibly fabulous yarn used in the sample picture? It makes me want to learn Entrelac all by itself!!

  3. Mmmm. Wonderful. It looks very much like my Noro Kureyon Sock S188, and I thought I might give it a whirl. You guys are wonderful – though in SEA, I still shop you online and in person when I’m in PDX. Thanks for having a great shop with such beautiful yarn.
