4.0 out of 5 stars entrelac explained 11 Oct 2011
By Bea
This book has very clear instructions and several new ideas for using entrelac. I found the pictures inspiring and the diagrams easy to follow. Although I have done entrelac before I have found it a bit of a trial - this book has made me want to try again. I think its suitable for beginners and advanced knitters.

5.0 out of 5 stars take a different direction 21 Jan 2011
As a knitter for forty years plus, I have never done entrelac, although I have often thought about it. It can be very effective. Gwen has taken a thorough approach to her subject. You need a little patience to conquer entrelac as the written instructions can appear to make no sense, which is why Gwen urges you to knit as you read and follow the instructions blindly. You can learn entrelac with this book - there are simple projects to try out the technique - like the coffee cup sleeves. The basic units can be used in your own designs and to that end there is also a section at the back on designing.

Every knitting books survives or dies on the strength of its patterns. Gwen has thoroughly investigated this technique and she presents loads of designs that are knitable and wearable. There are several that I would like to try, but my favourite is the two piece, top and skirt, the pattern is lovely. There are bags, tops, sweaters and accessories including children's knits and designs for men. Sure I don't like them all, but we rarely knit everything in a given pattern book. The reason I think this book is so wonderful is that I know no other knitter who has explored Entrelac like Gwen. Well done! This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Book! 1 Mar 2011
Lovely book with nice photos and interesting Design Ideas.
Covers the basics and typical flat designs and makes the ideas and techniques clear to a beginning knitter like me.

I especially like that she takes Entrelac further into the realms of Circular and tubular constructions, for more projects with a more natural drape.

Love the Backwards Knitting section! Useful!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very informative book 8 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was surprised by the scope of information contained in this book. It made be determined to try the designs and patterns and was a very comprehensive guide. I was initially put off by the dull and uninspiring cover but am so pleased I purchased it and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning new techniques in knitting. I have even converted some patterns to use on my Brother knitting machine.
