I’m very excited about my latest finished knitting project, which took me just 3 evenings to knit.
You may remember that I received a book on Entrelac knitting for Christmas. Well I was keen to try out the technique, so I decided to try the cowl pattern from the book, using Rico Galaxy Chunky yarn – a yarn I’ve been eager to use.
And this is how it turned out…
I absolutely love the entrelac technique. I even got the hang of knitting backwards (as taught in the book) which saves you from keep turn the work around every few stitches.
The pattern in the book uses a DK yarn, whereas I wanted to use a chunky, so I based the cowl on 4 base triangles, rather than the 6 given in the pattern.
I loved the yarn too. It’s a single ply, so you have to be careful not to split the stitches, but I loved the variegated colours and the sequins add a bit of sparkle.
I want to knit an entrelac cushion I think, perhaps with a different stitch pattern, rather than just plain old stocking stitch.
