Ombrélac Cowl - PDF Knitting Pattern


The Story

For all the years I’ve been knitting, I’ve never been a fan of Entrelac. As I publish this pattern, I look back and think that my lack of fandom for this fabulous technique was less a case of me not being a fan but rather my not having had a mental image of how best to implement Entrelac.

Now that I’ve had a chance to try my hand at it I’m completely addicted and can’t wait to knit ALL THE ENTRELAC. I love this first design – the scale of it, to me, feels perfect for a nice cuddleup-to-me cowl to keep warm on a chilly day.
