#231 Knitting Entrelac by Kitty Bryan, Thursday 1 pm to 4 pm
Experience: Be able to cast on, cast off, knit, purl, pick up, increase, and decrease stitches.
Workshop Description: Learn to knit an entrelac cowl. Entrelac comes from the French, entrelacer, meaning to interlace. Taught in a workbook format, students will learn to create additive fabric by knitting triangles or rectangles onto an existing fabric edge. Because there is not a consistent set of directions for knitting entrelac in literature; students, as a group, will explore five styles. Students will then swatch entrelac in the round in preparation for knitting a Cathedral Woods cowl. The Cathedral Woods pattern is written in a step by step approach for beginning entrelac knitters.
Participants should bring: For swatch: Wound-fingering weight yarn in two colors: 1 oz (28 g)/128 yds (117 m) each. US 5 (3.5 mm) circular needle, 24” (61 cm) cord.
For the cowl: Wound-fingering weight yarn in two colors: variegated 6.2 oz (175 g)/600 yds (550 m) and solid 1 oz (28 g)/128 yds (117 m). US 5 (3.5 mm) circular needle, 32” (81 cm) cord
