Entrelac Workshop

If you’ve wanted to learn how to knit entrelac in-the-round, this is your chance.

If you’ve wanted to knit my Entrelac Mittens from Knit Noro: Accessories in a smaller or larger size than the one published, this is your chance.

How about knitting back backwards; have you wanted to learn that? This is your chance.

Come take my entrelac mitten workshop at the upcoming Knit City fibre festival in Vancouver next month (Oct 13 & 14). In addition to learning the intricacies of entrelac, you will receive the full pattern with the added bonus of extra sizes; enough to fit the whole family.

Registration in a workshop gets you a full weekend pass to the Marketplace and demos. Marketplace hours are Sat 11-7 & Sun 11-5. Check out the list of vendors.

The mittens are created out of just eight large-scale diamonds and the thumb gusset flows out of the centre of one of those diamonds. Knit in Noro Kureyon, it’s a treat to watch each colourful diamond grow one by one as you work the technique.
