Date: Saturday, October 19, 2019
Time:2:00 - 5:00
Category:Knitting
Instructor:Vicki Twigg
Crosswinds Entrelac Mittens - SOLD OUT

The texture and modular construction of Entrelac makes these mittens very warm even in the coldest weather. Tiers or rows of blocks, slanting alternately to left and right to create the distinctive woven effect.

Techniques included are provisional cast on, decreases, picking up stitches.

Knitted in the round from the top down, you do not have to make any starting triangles and you can fit them to your hand as you go.

PrerequisitesGood intermediate skills - Pattern reading.  Some knowledge of entrelac is helpful but not essential. Great for the adventurous knitter.
