Entrelac knitting resembles complicated woven basketry, but is actually an intermediate level technique. If you can knit stockinette and pick up stitches, you can do entrelac! Entrelac is even more impressive when worked in a variegated yarn with long color changes, such as Noro Kureyon. Color changes occur in the length of a round, so blocks above and below appear as contrasting colors, heightening the woven effect. If you choose to work with a solid yarn the three-dimensional effect of entrelac knitting will pop. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY follow directions closely, work in the round on circular needle, knit, purl, stockinette stitch, slip stitches, using markers, purl two sts together and ssk decreases, pick up sts knitwise and purlwise, bind off GAUGE 18 sts & 24 rows over 4" (before felting) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Unfelted: Base width: 12"; top width: 91/2"; height: 81/2" Felted: Base width: 10"; top width: 81/2"; height: 61/2" SUGGESTED YARN 200 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Noro Kureyon

Like many of you, I am a mom, a wife, an employee, a community volunteer and a knitter, although not necessarily in that order. Back in the mid-2000’s I started publishing my designs in magazines such as Interweave Knits, Knitter’s, Vogue Knitting and Noro. I’ve also been included in several books, including the cover design of Knit Noro. Recently I started self-publishing patterns. While the initial patterns have been more challenging (reflecting the classes I teach), I am adding simpler patterns, and also hope to add some garments soon. My blog, Woolly-Wits, focuses on finding designs to flatter any figure, but especially those that stray widely from the super-model-esque. My teaching experience includes both local shops and larger events, such as Stitches, YarnCon and the Madison Knitters Guild Knit-In. I have also given talks to guilds.
