Entrelac - $30

Saturday, August 22nd, 12-4p

 Let us take the mystery out of entrelac knitting with this 4-hour workshop.  This stitch pattern involves picking up stitches and working rows of diamonds and triangles to create a fabric that looks like big, woven strips.  Let Noro yarn do all of the color work for you and create a stunning scarf.  Students will explore the construction of entrelac and learn how to pick up stitches correctly for a neat edge.  The extended time of this class will insure that students have a good start on their project and a sound understanding of the pattern before heading home.
