Knitting Technique

ENTRALAC COWL - $45

If you haven’t tried Entrelac knitting before, you may have been discouraged
from attempting it because it appears difficult. But if you can decrease
in knit and purl and pick up stitches or are willing to learn how, you have
all you need to get started, and this is a perfect first project. Although the
cowl is knit on circular needles and is joined the process of knitting the
tiers, it is not knit in the round but back and forth in knit and purl short
rows. The woven look of the Entrelac shows off the shadings in any
variegated worsted weight yarn with long repeats and looks
impressive in the finished cowl.

A supply list to make the cowl will be available in the shop when you sign up. If you would like to take this class come in before the day of the class, if possible, to pick out yarn for your project and get the supply list. If you are able to cast on before class, there will be more time for me to help you with the pattern.

Skill Level: Experienced Beginner

Techniques:Increasing and decreasing in knit and purl, picking up stitches, working entralac.
