Passeggiata: An Introduction to Entrelac Knitting with Ute

This gorgeous, oversized scarf takes us to the streets of Venice (Passeggiata means stroll in Italian), where one goes on promenade in the late afternoon and takes in the sunset bathing the beautiful old Palazzos. Lightweight and long enough to wrap multiple times for warmth or wear loosely as an elegant and decorative wrap. You’ll have as much fun wearing this as you will knitting it. 

The classes will introduce you to the concept of Entrelac knitting.  What is Entrelac knitting?  Entrelac knitting is a more advanced technique that creates a beautiful woven texture. Unlike most basketweave stitches, Entrelac works on the diagonal and in different directions so it truly looks like strips of woven knitting. Worked in short rows, you can knit this type of pattern in one or more colors. NOTE:   The last class is scheduled significantly later on purpose to give you time to complete the knitting of the main body, before we work together on finishing the piece. 

Let’s take a stroll together and have fun.
