Entrelac is a knitting technique used to create an irresistible textured diamond pattern. While the result resembles basket-woven strips of knitted fabric, the actual material comprises interconnected squares on two different orientations. Sounds complex, but if you can count to 8 you can accomplish this addictive sort of knitting. The pattern shown is worked in a variegated yarn (Noro! SweetGeorgia!) but you can also use multiple colors, one for each tier. Make the scarf as shown, or make it wider by increasing the number of slanted rectangles in each tier. Feeling adventurous? Make an entire entrelac blanket (see: Tumbling Blocks Blanket for a cute blanket to make for someone special.)

Advance preparation may be required, depending on the class topic. Details will be provided at least one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, or more if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for our classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. Classes must have at least three participants in order to run. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
