Introduction to Interlace Knitting
Instructor: Winn Archambeau-Muñoz
Thursday, November 14th; 10:00am-2:00pm
Have you ever admired the seemingly woven textured of entrelac knitting and thought, “I could never do that!”? If you can knit and purl, you CAN DO entrelac. Just by working on a small number of stitches at a time we will create the slanted rectangles that deceive the eye. This is a technique that is much easier to learn by doing than reading!
In this class we will learn how to make an entrelac swatch of a base of 3 triangles, several rows of right side and wrong side rectangles which can be continued to be knit into a cow (or other rectangular pattern). Other techniques (including picking up stitches, increasing stitches and decreasing on the purl and knit side, even knitting backwards!) will be demonstrated as needed.
Level: knitters must be able to knit, purl, and cast on.
Materials: 2 skeins worsted weight smooth yarn – preferably very different colors, Size US 7 or 8 needle, basic knitting supplies.
