That’s right, folks…we have another book contest! And if you have never done entrelac knitting, you should really
give it a try! It can look intimidating at first, but you will be a pro in no
time with Rosemary Drysdale’s book, Entrelac: The Essential Guide to Interlace
Knittng. It can be a fun and rewarding technique that not only looks
complicated and fancy, but is so versatile at the same time.
The book begins with Rosemary leading you through every step
of the way in understanding the concepts and techniques used for entrelac knitting. Using modular triangles and squares, you can create really stunning
and interesting pieces using cables, lace or colorwork. One of my favorite things about this book is the entrelac
stitch dictionary that highlights over 60 different stitch patterns!
Once you understand the concepts behind entrelac knitting, this stitch
dictionary makes a wonderful resource that allows you to create your very own
designs with confidence.
Just take a look at the Edwardian Cardigan! I just love the
contrast between the body that uses entrelac and the stripes of the sleeves.
This particular pattern uses nine different colors of yarn and shows that
entrelac is truly a technique that is stunning no matter how simple or
elaborate your design is.
In addition to step-by-step instructions to get you started
and an extensive stitch dictionary, you will also find patterns that explore
color, texture and entrelac within scarves, stoles, sweaters, blankets, baby
cardigans & hats, accessories and even socks!
Entrelac is a really neat technique that will have you knitting in a whole
new way, which is why I am so happy to have 3 copies of Entrelac: The
Essential Guide to Interlace Knitting to giveaway – all you have to do is
