Entrelac Knitting ~ A Review of Gwen Bortner Craftsy Class



I took Gwen's class wanting to learn this amazing knitting technique. I was amazed how the knitting leaned and seemed to have stitches going in different direction. I knew from experience that had to be done with some type of short rows but was not sure how. I was amazed when I learned through Gwen's class just how easy it is. You would think that would be awesome enough but I learned something else in her class. I learned the ability to knit backwards! That's right, no more turning my working when I am working in the stockinette stitch. The crazy thing is how much time you save by not turning your work.

To take this class you will need yarn, needles and the knowledge of knit and purl. You also need to know how to make a slip knot. That is about it. I am so glad I took her class.

I started off with her Entrelac Cowl pattern...
I used some Red Heart Super Saver in the Charcoal colorway and I love This Yarn in the Old Rose Colorway. I know this would be a learning piece and it still turned out great but I wished I had made it in wool like she suggested ... 

 I was nice having the option to download my class to my Ipad, allowing me to work on my cowl while high up in the Smoky Mountains where we did not have wifi or Internet. So lets look how Craftsy is set up, click play on the video below....
I can honestly say if it was not for the craftsy class I may have not learned how to do Entrelac. I am so glad I took the class and you will be too! Click here to be taken to Gwen's Class

Now to make a Flat Scarf Which is Lesson 6 and then a cape!! See you in class :)
