Entrelac Cowl

Entrelac – which means “interlaced” in French – is a basketweave stitch that looks knitted and woven – but is actually built as you go in connected wee modules, with the help of slipped stitches and decreases. Knitting entrelac in the round is a great way to start as it creates a smooth, seam-free tube of basketweave – perfect for a snuggly cowl. Skills needed: cast on, bind off, knit, purl, increases/decreases, knitting in the round. Skills learned: seamless in-the-round join, slipped-stitch edge, picking up stitches, and entrelac concept.
