Entrelac Knapsack and Pouch

from Knitability, LLC
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Entrelac Knapsack and Pouch
Entrelac Knapsack and Pouch Knapsack in Use
Entrelac Knapsack and Pouch Knapsack Bottom
Entrelac Knapsack and Pouch Entrelac Pouch and Knapsack

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Familiarity in working with circular needles

Pattern Description:

This has been the most popular pattern in the Knitability line and was featured as a kit for many seasons. For the first time, it is now available as a download! Our pattern now includes two sizes - the full size knapsack and the smaller pouch - perfect for learning the entrelac technique.

Color combinations are practical endless. And with only needing 25 yds per tier for the pouch and 60 yds per tier for the knapsack, it can be a great stash-buster as well. They make great gifts and are a wonderful way to share your knitting skills with friends and family!
