FO On Wednesday

I finished the Entrelac Cap yesterday which completes my fall semester senior year of Loopy Academy. I added a few extra round of squares to make the hat slouchy and to meet the yardage requirement. This was my first time knitting entrelac. It wasn’t hard but towards the end I found myself “doing it backwards” but it didn’t alter the completed project. To be honest I’m not a fan of it. It was a little fiddly to do but mostly I don’t like the look. I like my knitting neat and orderly and this is all over the place and lumpy. I’m glad to have given it a try though. That’s what Loopy Academy is all about-trying things you wouldn’t do on your own and tackling a new skill. 

The pattern is Entrelac Cap by Kathy Gometz. The yarn is Lorna’s Laces Sportmate in spats. The yarn is soft and a pleasure to knit with. The pattern is easy enough to follow and there are great videos on YouTube for seeing how entrelac works. I particularly like this knitting entrelac in the round one

    Thank you! I want to try Entrelac for one of my October classes for the Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup where I have to try something new. I was having a difficult time deciding, but this hat sounds like a good idea:)

  2. I know what you mean but I do find the colour changing yarn adds an extra sculptural quality which is rather fascinating 🙂

    I have never tried entrelac. So you used one colorway throughout? Looks nice and cozy.

    I’m with you, I’m just not very excited about the look of entrelac, though it does look like a good knitting adventure. You finished Loopy Academy so quickly this fall…WOW! Well done!
