Norwegian knit designers-and sisters-Heidi Eikeland and Mette Hovden discovered entrelac by chance, without even knowing what the technique was called. It was only after searching long and hard for more patterns that included the textured blocks that they realized they'd come across an entry in Norway's official "red list" of endangered handcrafts: a traditional design element so rarely worked in contemporary patterns that knowledge of it had been deemed at risk of dying out.
The obvious solution was to design more patterns themselves, resulting in this collection of 40 projects that capture the exceptional and distinctive "woven" look of entrelac, including both striking multi-colour designs and elegant single-colour patterns. Now, let Heidi and Mette introduce you to entrelac as a technique:
- Step-by-step instructions for how to work it the Norwegian way.
- Tips and tricks for shaping, and transitioning from entrelac to stockinette and back again.
- Dozens of eye-catching garments and accessories for men and women, children and adults-including hats, mittens, sweaters, scarves, and more.
- Stunning embellishments for yokes, cuffs, and anywhere your needles take you!
