"Quant" - learning entrelac


This strange animal is the progress I made this evening on "Quant"...

a free pattern for an entrelac headband featured at knitty.com. Entrelac looks like woven knitted strips, but is actually only one thickness. Stitches are picked up and knitted in different directions to make small diamonds to give the woven effect.

I am having to follow each step of the pattern very carefully and have faith that it will turn out how it's supposed to.

This is the total opposite of the Tomten Jacket which is also in progress...so now I have a choice...easy...or challenging...when I dip into my knitting bag.

Very cool, Nicola! This is another knitting technique for fancy stitches that I want to learn. Can't wait to see your finished headband.

You'll be needing a wardrobe of these 'challenging' headbands if that snow continues for much longer! The finished article using this clever technique looks really good. x
