Entrelac Knitting Tutorial

IMG_3375.JPGThis knitting technic called Entrelac is not as difficult as You may think it is….

I have put a little video together on how to work the block on the right side on how to merge the two sections together….

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.

Coffee Shop Wrap

IMG_6172_medium2The colours in this wrap are just perfect for this pattern and guess what I used up all kinds of my left-over scarp yarns…well not really scrap yarn as it is all so wonderful and we never have scrap yarn if you are thinking like me…IMG_6142_medium2

I always tend to think what can I make with this little bit of yarn before I go to my perfectly full skeins that are just waiting to be use for

“THAT PERFECT PROJECT”

So if you are like me then you saved up many  PERFECTLY amazing yarn and use up the left-over yarns… smiles ….

I did say that I am not going to able to knit up all this yarn and wear it before I am not here anymore….well I decided to start using my So Amazing yarns and knit up something gorgeous. Even If I have to give it to an appreciating person that would wear it….so ok enough of this chabbering…lets get knitting… and designing my next project for January issue….off to work I go.

But here is the info for this fun wrap ….totally love it.

Coffee Shop Wrap by Alexandra Tavel

Eggli Vest

_K0A9742With excitement and happiness can I tell you that my latest pattern called

Eggli Vest”

has been published and is available for you too to knit know.

As you all probably have been noticing  in all my latest patterns there is always a cable pattern somewhere knit into the design.

You guessed right if you said “she loves cables”

The Eggli Vest has also been knit with my own yarn

“KnitswissYarn”

 

5-7 skeins of  Sport Weight depends on the size you are knitting it. Yarn only sold directly through contacting me here on the blog or at  knitswiss@gmail.com

Pattern is available in several sizes.   Eggli Vest

_K0A9748

The “Eggli Vest” has been published in the latest “A Needle Pulling Thread” magazine Issue #17. You are able to download the pattern if you can’t get the magazine by clicking on the link above.

As Carla the publisher of the magazine indicates:

“The Eggli Vest is a one of the most versatile vest in a long time, wearing it upside down will give it a different look and it’s the same vest! A little cable for interest and structure, and I-cord cast off for that final touch of class.”

 

 

 

Pictures have been taken by Carla “A Needle Pulling Thread” for this magazine…..
