Pick up tips for choosing appropriate yarn and needles, handling mistakes, and blocking.

Level: Beginner Description of Workshop Levels
Technique: Knitting

Entrelac fabric looks like strips of knitting woven over and under each other, but it’s really formed of individually knitted diamonds. No sewing is required: you join the diamonds together as you knit them. In this class, you’ll learn to form the basic units of entrelac: base triangles, side triangles, left- and right-leaning diamonds, and top triangles. You’ll also pick up tricks like knitting back backwards and methods for sizing and shaping entrelac fabric.

Prerequisites/Skills Needed: Basic knitting experience

Materials you are required to bring: Smooth, light colored, worsted-weight yarn in two or more colors; needles of a size appropriate for your yarn

Homework: None
