Entrelac

entrelac knitting

I've been learning a new knitting technique called entrelac. You knit sections by increasing and decreasing and picking up stitches so it ends up looking like woven strips.

It's simple but tedious. And this is the wrong yarn to show it off. It looks really nice in an ombre yarn where the sections of color are long enough to make the blocks mostly one color.

I suspect I'll rip this out and save this yarn for something else.

That's so cool! It really does look woven.

that is very cool. It's a good thing I don't know how to knit or I would be adding yet another item to my list of things to try.

The word entrelac was different enough for me to become interested. I'll never know much about knitting, but I've always loved watching it done in the background. Comfort.

Ann- I should come teach you!

Ratty- It is a comforting type of thing to do. I never thought of it being comforting to someone watching. I like it!

Reena- to knit? or just entrelac?
