Edgy, Easiest Entrelac Ever
About Edgy, Easiest Entrelac Ever with Laura Barker
Have you been wanting to learn entrelac, or tried and been confused by triangles and different slants? “Edgy” takes full advantage of the intrinsic shape of the rectangles to create a zig zag edge, with no need to learn any triangles. The rectangles are all worked in k1, p1 ribbing, and stitches are picked up using my 'double half stitch pickup' method for a fully reversible scarf. Because there is no right side or wrong side, all rectangles slant in the same direction, so most of them are identical, and the few rectangles with slight variations are easy to learn. If you want to master the basic structure of entrelac, this is the easiest way! Edgy debuted at Rhinebeck 2014 and quickly shot to #1 on Ravelry’s “Hot Right Now” list. Join the fun.
This Fiber Arts Seminar is offered as part of the 2021 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and is limited to 20 students.
Class Materials Needed
This scarf may be knit in any weight yarn from fingering to worsted, using approximately 400 yds, regardless of weight; a yarn that has some color change is recommended. Because both entrelac and ribbing tend to make your fabric denser, go up a needle size or two for a nice drape, US#4/3.5mm for fingering weight up to US#9/5.5mm for worsted weight.
