Anyone experienced in Entrelac?
I'm trying a pattern that is in Knit 'n Style. It's for a sleeveless top using an entrelac pattern. I finished my first set of triangles and 1 rectangle .

Has anyone done much with this knitting style? Any words of wisdom?

Thanks!

Carie

I did not know what this is when I read the post, however, while waiting to see a movie this afternoon, we went into Barnes & Nobles. While there, I browsed thru the knitting magazines and saw one called Knitnstyle, and they had a big article on just this topic, plus a pattern for a sweater! You might go look at that if you get a chance.

pat.

I'm sorry, I am a dork! I was suffering from such a bad migraine when I originally read this that I failed to see that was the magazine you had!!!!!! I will just go crawl under a rock now........

I've done a lot of entralac and will try to help you if you have any problems. The attached is one of my own designs.

Soxy your work is amazingly beautiful!

My philosophy - since I don't have much time or patience, if I'm going to knit a garment, it's going to be visible. So I make sweaters mostly. There is a pattern in Knit n Style for an entrelac shell, which is more or less 2 squares of entrelac sewn together. I'd like to learn how to shape garmets more with entrelac (e.g., armholes, sleeves). I saw some sweater examples at my LYS and they are breathtaking!

That is one beautiful sock! I'm with Carie though, it seems a shame to take something that fantastic and stick it in a shoe! Maybe you can translate your talent to sweaters so the world can actually see what you can do!

I saw on some other knitting site in the sock area about these clear clogs and boots. At first I thought what the heck is that doing in the sock area. But then it hit - your beautiful homemade socks will show through! Apparently from what I read, they're comfortable enough! http://www.knittersdream.com/

Carie, Ingrid, and Jouf for comments about my :XX:


I only wear Birkies. :D so my socks are visiable. I have been knitting for so very long that I have a lot of sweaters so switched to socks when the new self patterning yarns came out. Now I also use solid colors and put lace, cable or relife st work in them.

[I am working on a couple of new sweaters for me but it has been a while since I did. No one else in my family wants any more sweaters, either, and now my youngest said she didn't need any more socks.]

It is the rare bird that has the nerve to go out with sandals and socks!

That is me for sure....

However if you were in this part of the world you would see that over 50% of the people wear Birkies year round [seldom have snow] and wear socks in them during the cooler months.
