Entrelac at a Different Angle
Notes for Entrelac:
- The purl side of entrelac is very
interesting and pleasant. A large rectangle
made from this stitch and edged with ribbing or
crocheting would make an excellent crib/carseat cover.
- Starting in a 'corner' eliminates the need
for a gauge swatch in some cases! Once you have the
'corner' started, you can use it to calculate the gauge
of the rest of the item.
- Once again, a huge round of applause to Judy
both for helping to de-confuse my instructions
and for granting permission to use the mitten on the
- Judy & I have so many ideas for this technique that
we could fill a book!
- I've done a cloche (think Roaring
20's style hat) and like it so much I've already made another.
- Judy has incorporated E@A into one project and is
considering using it to knit quilt-style.
- I've started a jacket with verticle stripes.
- We both agree that working the blocks is akin to
eating chips, peanuts or M&M's -
you just can't stop!
- Sizing by adding or subtracting blocks, instead of
starting with a gauge swatch, is very popular.
- E@A eliminates the 'pooching'
triangle row at the bottom of a sweater. (There's
a feature that I hadn't even considered.)
- Some knitters are happy to be reminded that
entrelac can empty their odd-ball basket.
