Faux Entrelac Socks

On Sale
Added to cart
The main pattern on these socks uses a cunning combination of yarnovers and decreases to create a lacy motif which has the the criss-crossing look of entrelac, but without all that tedious turning-the-work-every-few-stitches which entrelac requires.

Skills required
  • Knitting
  • Purling
  • Yarnovers
  • Increasing

  • Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off or other method which creates a stretchy bind-off edge
