Get creative with color! On this episode of Knitting Daily TV we feature a wide variety of colorwork techniques. We have ideas for using color playfully and unexpectedly in your knitting and crochet projects.

Watch a preview of episode 503:



Getting Started


Eunny gives a quick lesson on entrelac colorwork knitting, a form of knitting that makes a fabric of textured diamonds and triangles.

Designer Spotlight


Kristin visits with designer Lorna Miser on location. Lorna introduces her playful methods of using a board game spinner or a deck of cards as ways to force yourself to mix up your colorwork selection process. It's a simple and fun way to think outside the box!

Is there a pattern for the entrelac sweater that Eunie shows while teaching entrelac technique?  I'd love to make that sweater!
