    Entrelac Workshop
    Part 1:
    Entrelac Workshop: Intro-to-Entrelac Shawl
    Marly Bird
    This cozy shawl is the perfect place to start your entrelac adventure. Working in two colors, Marly demonstrates how to knit a single rectangle, then how to join and build rectangles to create the eye-catching checkerboard pattern. Hone your skills through repetition to create the shawl body, and at the end, add some quick and easy tassels for the finishing touch.
    Part 2:
    Entrelac Workshop: In-the-Round Entrelac Cowl
    Marly Bird
    Now that you know how to knit entrelac flat, you’re ready to work it in the round. Marly Bird teaches this circular technique with a vibrant color-changing cowl. You’ll begin by working a tier of triangles, then switch to the rectangles you know so well by now. As you continue building shapes tier-by-tier, the color-changing yarn creates a subtle and painterly effect throughout the cowl. Bonus knitting party trick: In this class, Marly shows you how to knit backwards, so you don't have to turn your work when you do purl rows. How cool is that?
