Ella - An Entrelac Hat
Yarn: Lamb's Pride - approx. 120 yds. chunky
Needles: 10 1/2 dps
I love this entrelac hat. It was a quick knit and completed in a weekend of casual knitting.
I highly recommend this book. Many, many hat patterns that I like. I purchased it with my 40% off coupon at JoAnn's.
I had the novel idea of knitting a swatch in the future as I wish this hat were a “little deeper”. Unless it’s a sweater or something very time-consuming or special, I don’t swatch. Bad!, bad, bad!!!! That’s how knitters become such “gifting” people.
If it doesn’t fit us, it’s bound to fit someone, right?
Entrelac falls in the category of modular knitting. If you have a lot of yarn "nuggets", modular knitting is a great way to use them up. Consider a pair of entrelac socks, scarf, mittens, etc.
Now isn't this an interesting way to mend or repair your handknits!
I bet Deb could easily do this with her supply of needles that are collected like crayons.
Are any of us on this "Top Listed Blogs" ?
