Entrelac in the Round or Seamless Entrelac


At long last, here is the second part of the Entrelac tutorials - Seamless Entrelac!

Below you will find a printable guide that you can use to create your own seamless entrelac projects.   There is also a video on the technique.

This  tutorial on seamless entrelac is intended for those knitters who already have an understanding of entrelac.  If you need further instruction on entrelac basics, you can find my other tutorial HERE.

Seamless Entrelac is really the same as when worked flat, except you don't need to knit the side triangles.  This means, if you already have a grasp on entrelac, then working it in the round will be a snap.  When starting, it looks as though you will be working flat, and you may wonder how it will turn into seamless entrelac.  Your fabric will not be joined until you work the last Right Leaning Rectangle.

The photo above shows the Cables and Lace Entrelac Cowl.  The pattern is available only on Craftsy.  Click the picture below to go to Craftsy to purchase the pattern.  The lace stitch used in the cowl is Cat's Eye Lace, and the cable stitch is my own (although it is so simple, I am sure it has been done many times over by others).

  1. Hi. I am interested in doing an entrelac project. But I am very confused on how one would do other stitches, such as the cat's eye lace? Do you choose patterns that will end you with one less than your stitch count? Such as a multiple of 4 when your entrelac is 5? And should the rows be no longer than your stitch count (i.e. 5 rows for 5 sts)? Sorry for all the questions. I hope this is not too troublesome. I am just so very confused.
