What is entrelac? Traditionally, this deceptively simple knitting
technique creates small shapes using short row techniques that build
upon each other. The overall effect often looks like basketweave as the
shapes lean to the right or left and appear to be interlocking.
Kathryn Alexander has spent her career exploring entrelac and has
taken the medium in so many directions—not only left and right, but up
and out, down and around, swirling, whirling, and every-which-way. She
finds that the possibilities with entrelac are literally endless and the
surfaces she creates are whimsical and enchanting.
