Entrelac knitting is a technique of making a basket-weave looking stitch, with stitches leaning in alternating directions it truly looks woven.
This technique involves working short rows, the M1 increase and the skp decrease (slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped st over) to create the slanted squares. We will go over all of these in class, not to worry.
We will work a swatch of entrelac in this class as a learning tool. The swatch can be knit in any worsted weight yarn, but if you use a cotton, the swatch can double as a dishcloth.
Learning Outcomes: how to knit the entrelac pattern, SKP decrease, M1, short rows
Required Skills: comfortable with knits, purls, increasing and decreasing.
Required Materials: 50g of worsted weight yarn (cotton to make a dishcloth), 5mm needles (straight or 24″ circulars), and a darning needle.
