This year, Grandma Rejeanne (my boyfriend's mother's mother) received my very first entrelac piece for Christmas Cheesy I used Ruth Cook's Entrelac Cap pattern (Ravelry link, Ruth's blog link), though I utilized it more as a recipe. I cast on an additional two repeats with a 4.5mm circular needle to make it the correct size, so there were a total of ten 8-stitch repeats. I also did two 4-stitch rows, and three 3-stitch rows before binding off and gathering the top (or maybe it was the other way around...).

I'll be honest: entrelac is TOUGH! However, this technique (along with socks) is what got me wanting to improve my knitting skill beyond garter stitch. Once I got the hang of the repeats (and learned how to knit left-handed to avoid turning my work constantly), it went quite smoothly. Without further ado, here's my dollar-store-yarn entrelac chapeau!

I love the intricacy of that, you inspire me to try entrelac.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
