One of the best books on the subject I have read. I assumed that the handouts she gave us in class would be included in the book or at least something similar would be included.

I had no idea thi A goldmine! However, I do NOT hte that someone could pick up this book and understand it without the class. Refresh and try again.
The editing of this book is admirable; clear I agree with other reviewers that this is quite excellent—probably the best I’ve seen on the Entrelac technique.
I have taught myself the technique from other internet sources, but this book has some really great patterns and gives a lesson on color. Feb 25, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked the description and teaching method of the technique, and there were several nice patterns.
The instructions make sense, and I learned a great tip about how to knit backwards. For that reason, I feel like it’s almost false advertising. I just need a LOT more practice before my knitting is any good.
As a tutorial this book is great and it has some very useful info. Oct 28, Polly rated it it was amazing Shelves: But, it was the cover that attracted me and I was very disappointed that no where in the book did I find instructions on how to start a 5 color scarf like the cover.
Jan 20, Alana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Again, I’ve bought this book to teach myself and experiment with the stitch in my knitted blankets and also shawls and stoles. I thought maybe you cast on beginning triangles for the long side maybe 30 triangles for a long shawl but the photos clearly show the colors worked vertically, not horizontally.
There is a follow-up book to this and I think I’ll get that soon. There are plenty of patterns here I would knit but the photo by photo instructions is the piece de resistance.
I agree with other reviewers that this is quite excellent—probably the best I’ve seen on the Entrelac technique. IF you have a great deal of patience you just may create a beautiful heirloom. Hannah Larsson rated it it was amazing Dec 25, That class made the whole conference worth it! Open Preview See a Problem? I tried a sample swatch and it turned out great, which is a victory for me because I have always wanted to try entrelac knitting.
I do have a triangle corner from which to pickup stitches for the 3rd WS Rectangle but what do I connect it to? Nov 08, Tbe rated it liked it.
The most attractive feature of the book is not actually in the book. Loved the ideas in this book! Do I just pick iterlace and purl 10 stitches and make 19 rows? Preview — Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Books by Rosemary Drysdale.
Ornith rated it liked it Mar 16, I have never done entrelac before though I have done Tunisian crochet entrelac so do understand the concept of it. Good think I kept those handouts! Thanks for telling us about the problem. Want to Read saving….
Lists with This Book. Good background on the history of the art. It’s more a pattern book, nothing else. I had no problem following the instructions and patterns in the book because I had taken the class. Aug 10, Larissa rated it really liked it Shelves: I am done with Left Front. Not sure I really want to bite back I’d always wanted to learn entrelac and found knittingg very confusing until that day.
