Entrelac Knitting Patterns
Entrelac is a knitting technique made with basic knitting stitches to form squares that are joined by picking up stitches on the edge of one square to start the next square. It can be knit in one or more colors and is a great way to showcase multi-colored yarn. Never tried Entrelac Knitting before? Don’t worry. Many of these patterns have detailed instructions and links to videos.
