”Entrelac is defined as a knitting technique that produces a fabric with a woven appearance – tiers of tilting blocks appear to run over and under each other worked in one piece as a series of interconnecting rectangle.” Are you now feeling sufficiently intimidated? Don’t be – Entrelac knitting is not only fun but the end results leave you with a project you will be proud of.
Margaret will introduce class participants to Entrelac knitting by making a simple washcloth using one skein of worsted weight. If you feel more adventurous you can start right in on the Hobo Bag (pictured) from "Entre to Entrelac" by Gwen Bortner.
When: Wednesday, February 29th, 
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Instructor: Margaret
Level: Advanced beginner. (You must know how to knit and purl.)
Please purchase your yarn and supplies (including book if making the Hobo Bag) prior to the beginning of class. For class participants the books will be 20% off.
