Do you mean entrelac? That's probably why you haven't been able to find info about on Google etc. It's spelled 'entrelac'.

Entrelac is a way to knit stockinette stitch so it looks like strips of yarn were woven over and under each other.
Puppyluv knit the Lady Eleanor Wrap from Scarf Style--you can see the WIP HERE (second pic down)

The new issue of Interweave Knits has a great explanation of it, PLUS a pattern for entrelac socks.

The next KH monthly challenge (for March) is going to be entrelac. I don't think many of us have experience with it, so I thought it would be a good technique to learn and practice

Oh way cool, Hildie; I just might join that one. I've done a scarf, but found a pattern for a hat. Now what yarn can I use....

And Danica from knitty is also entrelac.

I started an entrelac pillow. It's on hold at the moment while I finish my boyfriend's shirt (testing the boundries of our relationship and the boyfriend sweater curse ).

Anyway, here's a pic of what I've got so far. It's really fun, and I can't wait to get back to it.


If you search the forum for "entrelac pillow" you'll find a GORGEOUS pillow one of the forum members made.

It really does look like they were weaved together.

I did an entrelac pillow back in October. You can see a pic of it here I love knitting entrelac . It's quick, fun and beautiful. Only downside is that it eats up a lot of yarn. My Pillow took 2 fill skeins of SWS, and it's barely big enough to be a small couch pillow.

Well, those of you who have experience with it, I expect you to help out on the KAL! I've never done it, so my when people ask questions I'll be all like and and and :thinking:

I think I'll recommend Danica as the KAL project. I usually don't recommend specific projects, but in this case, it's something free and easy that we all have access to... and it's good for stashbusting.
