View Full Version : FO - Entrelac

04-24-2007, 01:04 AM
So do I need a job or what. All I do is sit here surf for jobs and knit and watch my daughter play.

Anyways I have heard so many people talk about Entrelac(?sp) and it looks so neat so I searched on how to do it and found someone who had directions for it all in garter stitch so I tried it and it is easy and fun to do. So I started it today and kept going on it and ended up making it into a purse.

Nope haven't lined the bag not sure if I will. It may just end a play bag for my daughter. Again I have no idea what the yarn is for sure, I have a bad habit of buying mill ends from Walmart as they are cheap for a one pound bag its five bucks. It feels like a chunky Acrylic it is quite soft. I crocheted my daughter a sweater out of it and I think I have enough left for a hat to match the sweater(Jan what have you done to me I am addicted to making that simple hat you created)

Here is a technical meaning of Entrelac that I found when looking for help with it: The term entrelac means interlaced or ornament composed of interlacing figures and comes from the French. In knitting, it describes a pattern of squares where each square is knit at right angles to its neighbor. The resulting pattern resembles a basketweave pattern. In knitting books, the pattern is also called basket stitch, birch stitch, trellis, lattice stitch, woven lattice, and diamond weave.

Heres a link to the pattern I followed to do it in garter stitch(I think it is usually done in Stockinete Stitch. http://criminyjickets.blogspot.com/2006/07/garterlac-dishcloth.html

Thanks for the info. I think it very clever that you took a design and made your own item from that. Wonderful. When the pattern says 'turn' what does that actually mean? I guess I should ask what needles you used first.
