Entrelac Knitting Tutorial

I will be working on a view more videos in the next view days, that will show you how to Merge the sections together on the purl side.  And hopefully also the two triangle section on each side.  The last row with all the casting off triangles …..Yes then off to the sleeves and the collar.

So please visit for More Videos to follow soon….and Hope to have pattern available for this Cardi Entrelac Style soon too.

Origami Shrug

File 2017-05-22, 6 10 33 PMBlowing in the summer wind it is for sure…

This Origami Shrug by Melissa Wehrle is so soft and light. It has been on my mind for way to long to knit this shrug up. Since I have the book now for  several years I thought it really is time to start knit it up too…

Can you tell I am Soooo loving it .File 2017-05-22, 6 07 27 PM

 

 

 

 

I used 5 skeins of my absolute favourite yarn called Louet MerLin Sport Weight a total of 1142 meters where knit up with needle  US 6 -4.0mm in the Aqua colour. So sad though this yarn is now discontinued ;-(((

If I would knit this Origami Shrug again I would be to use my KnitswissYarns in sport weight. Really think it would be stunning too.

Totally in love with this Origami Shrug.

When it came to sewing the back together I put the stitches on two separate needles and used the Kitchener this way…no one will see a seam!

(Now if you are going to knit this one up, look at the pattern errata there is a correction that is important to know! )

Wenn hattst Du das letztemal Lebensmittel eingekaufst  und hattes jemand angetroffen und noch schnell einen Kaffee getruncken hier? Unhörbar hier bei uns …..über den Grossen See

Ohh ja der Garten ….was können wir an BLUMEN planzen? Oh nicht zu vergessen die Nymphensittiche, die mein Vater so genossen hatte, Pflege und Zucht in unserem Hinterhof hatt sie nun auch übernommen.
