Put entrelac knitting on your "to learn" list

Entrelac knitting creates a beautiful basket-weave pattern of knitted stitches and can be created flat or in the round. Online 'how to' entrelac youtube videos and online courses are available for your convenience. But you don't have to be an expert knitter, because simple knit and purl stitches, k2tog and p2tog, and picking up stitches are all you need to know. Choose a yarn like Noro Silk Garden, which is variegated and has long color repeats for a quilted look of many colors and stranded knitting. You can also use solid colors to obtain the basket-weave fabric with the free scarf pattern below.
