Book Description

Learn the versatile technique of entrelac knitting and choose from 40 stunning projects to make.

Norwegian knitwear designers Heidi Eikeland and Mette Hovden have collaborated to present a thorough, step-by-step introduction to entrelac knitting; a technique in which the fabric is formed by knitting textured, diamond-shaped blocks. It creates an almost woven appearance unlike any other - and now it’s easier than ever to master! With a selection of eye-catching, contemporary garments for men, women and children, including gorgeously-patterned multicolour designs and elegant single-colour designs, there is a 'comprehensive techniques' section to get you started.

You can work an entrelac design as a stunning embellishment across a sweater yoke or around the cuff of a mitten, or turn an entire garment into a dazzling work of art!
