|A Photo Journal of Entrelac|
|This is a walk thru, step by step for the Entrelac Satchel pattern. Just click on the photos for a larger view.
Please refer to the pattern for specific instructions. Sample shown in a two color bag.
|Cast on 30 stitches.
I used the long tail cast on, but any cast on method will work.
Now start the foundation triangles. You will be turning the work often.
|This is what the first triangle looks like when completed.
The next triangle is worked over the next group of stitches in the same manner.
|Your foundation triangles will look like this.
You will now start Step 1
|Start with the purl side facing and purl 2 stitches, then you will turn your work.|
|A close up of the lifted bar increase (put the needle in the yarn between the two stitches, then knit in the back of the stitch, twisting the stitch to avoid a hole)|
|You will now have three stitches|
|An example of the P2tog. Notice one stitch is from the step 1 triangle and one is from the foundation triangle.|
|The completed P2tog|
|The Step 1 Right Pointed Triangle Completed|
|With the purl side facing, you will pick up stitches along the edge purl wise (put the needle into the stitch from back to front, wrap yarn to purl)|
|Here's how the purlwise picked up stitches look|
|After turning, working the knit row, then turning again, you will work to the end, then P2tog (again, one from the current Step and one from the Foundation Step)|
|One rectangle completed.|
|Step 1 almost complete. All rectangles worked, but we still need to do the Left Pointed Triangle|
|Pick up stitches purlwise across the last Foundation Triangle as you did earlier.|
|You will be decreasing one stitch every right side row|
|Decrease until you have just one stitch left.
This stitch will be worked as part of Step 2:
