Easy Entrelac Knitting Tutorial: Basic Entrelac Scarf by Lisa Shroyer

Pattern #1

Basic Entrelac Scarf by Lisa Shroyer

Lisa's basic scarf is the perfect project to make when you're just starting out with this technique. For first timers, we suggest you use it to knit along with Eunny Jang's entrelac tutorial at the beginning of the free eBook. One of our favorite parts of this fun project is how the self-striping yarn does a lot of the work.


Knitting Entrelac Bags: Felted Entrelac Fobs by Susan Pierce Lawrence

Pattern #2

Felted Entrelac Fobs by Susan Pierce Lawrence

These little bags are worked in entrelac in the round, a technique that's covered in detail in the opening how-to article. Fobs are wonderful little learning projects, and they make fabulous gifts and gift bag options. You'll fall in love with this darling entrelac knitting pattern.


Entrelac Patterns: Reservoir Mitts by Allyson Dykhuizen

Pattern #3

Reservoir Mitts by Allyson Dykhuizen

These mitts are one of our favorite, truly unique, entrelac patterns. They begin with a panel that forms the back of the hand. Stitches are then picked up from this panel for the palm, wrist ribbing, fingers, and thumb. The wrist ribbing is only on the inside of the wrist; there's a pretty seed stitch band on the entrelac portion of the wrist. These mitts are really neat.


Entrelac Knitting Instructions: Cochin Shrug by Eunny Jang

Pattern #4

Cochin Shrug by Eunny Jang

Worked from side to side, this shrug grows by increasing the size of the entrelac units from the cast-on to the center, where stitches are bound off for one front side. Stitches are cast on for the other front side, and the units are decreased to the original stitch count. The finished shrug resembles a paper lantern or a globe hinged at the equator. This pattern is for those knitters who are fairly comfortable knitting entrelac.


Entrelac Patterns: Curvy Squares Tee by Bonnie Paul

Pattern #5

Curvy Squares Tee by Bonnie Paul

This tee is a departure from traditional entrelac: tiers of squares that grow and shrink in size stack up into a neatly fitted yoke and a flattering built-in shape. This sweater is worked from the top down in the round.


Entrelac Socks by Eunny Jang

Pattern #6

Entrelac Socks by Eunny Jang

Eunny achieves an argyle kilt-sock look with her socks. Knitted from the toe up, these socks combine entrelac, color knitting, and sock knitting techniques that result in a really amazing pair of socks. If you've knit socks and you've got a couple of entrelac projects under your belt, you can definitely knit these!
