But it gets better. It also includes written-out pattern instructions (no charts, sad to say) for knitting fancy, non-stockinette rectangles that can be combined with plain stockinette rectangles to add interest to entrelac fabric. The "designer" rectangles incorporate lace patterns, cables, relief designs, geometric designs, colorwork, beads, felting, embroidery, and "melange" techniques such as two-color garter stripes. Each "designer" rectangle pattern is illustrated by a large full-color swatch photo. By my count, there are more than 50 patterns for different fancy rectangles.
And it gets even better. There are attractive patterns for garments that use entrelac accent panels (highly-textured entrelac fabric can be overpowering if a garment is knit entirely in entrelac). There are also patterns for pillows, socks, purses, blankets, cowls, scarves, shawls, and long mitts. The garment patterns include: (1) uptown poncho, (2) rose garden baby cardi, (3) Edwardian cardigan, (4) shades of gray vest, and (5) garden path jacket. I particularly like the baby cardigan, which has an entrelac border with embroidered roses, and the garment patterns that use stripes in combination with entrelac sections. All of the patterns are basic enough to have general appeal, without being boring.Read more ›
Unlike one of the other reviewers, I have knitted entrelac before. The reason I purchased the book is the inspiration it provides. Many of the entrelac garments that I've seen in the past looked pretty much alike, and not things I would want to knit and wear. Ms. Drysdale has done some amazing things with entrelac. The stitchionary of entrelac variations is worth the price of the book. But even more, the garments (for which she also provides patterns) show how you can take the technique and do some amazing things with it. I'm not sure that I will make the patterned garments (and they are beautiful!), but they have inspired me to take another look at the technique and incorporate it into my own designs. This book opened my eyes to what can be done.
Copenhagen and many of U S states. This Entrelac by Rosemary Drysdale, is the very
best book about this subject. The photos are supperb using yarn and needles, so you can see how the stitches are placed. Easy to read and understand.
I have recommended this book to my Knitting Guild members.
