Have you done Entrelac??
I was wondering if any of you have done anything in the Entrelac design?

My local yarn shop is offering classes on Wednesday nights all month in March. She has chosen a pretty bag that we will knit in Entrelac then felt it. To be honest....I think the one I saw her making was too pretty to felt!! So I have signed up for the class but not sure I'll felt mine when its done. I've never done this design before and I think it looks interesting.

Anyone have any "experiece" with this?? Thanks! :XX:

Entralac is one of my all-time favorite patterns. It takes some thinking to figure out, but then it just flows. I love it. I've never felted it, but it could be nice. Have fun!
And Ingrid - that is a beautiful example.

I tried entrelac and gave up. It was because of doing color changes, and noticeing how many ends I would have to weave in

I hope to start it again using a single color. It's something nice to learn though.

Entrelac is easy and very addictive! Try doing it with a self-striping yarn like Kureyon and the color changes are done for you.

I think entrelac is just gorgeous, and I'd love to have an entrelac tote. Problem is, I can't get my head around entrelac. I've tried it several times and end up with a wonky mess. I just need to see someone do it once; then I'm sure the pattern directions will all make sense!

Tom's entrelac afghan is gorgeous!!

I hope!
I hope I can do this even with the classes. lol I have tried to read thru some directions on it and I can't get it either. But seems when I SEE someone do it then it "clicks" in my brain and I eventually get it....I hope so with this.
That example is very pretty!! I am excited about it. I'll post on Wed. night and let you all know how it went.

My entrelac was great to do. I started it at my daughters house mid January, and just finished it two days ago. I used the Lady Eleanor Enrelac from "scarfSTYLE". I used "Foilage" which has great color work, as I was not interested in having to weave in ends as well. It is b abit thicker than what the pattern required, and I also used larger needles, so it is more like a throw.
I have been knitting for 45 years and it is one of my forms of meditation. I just wanted to try the entrelac for something new, and am planning a scarf in the future.
I am including a photo that is on my blog.
