Class Description
Take some tilty squares and triangles, add a fancy French name, and you get a totally addicting stitch pattern! Whether they lean to the right or to the left, whether they’re right side up or upside down, you’ll learn all of the building blocks you need to make any entrelac pattern. Bonus skill: knitting backward! The sample started in class can easily grow into a very pretty scarf.
