Entrelac in the Round
Entrelac in the round, or seamless entrelac, is nearly identical to flatentrelac. The difference is you will not need to worry about the sidetriangles! That’s it. You will still work base triangles, left and rightleaning rectangles, and bind off triangles.Like flat entrelac, your base triangles are going to look odd until the firsttier of rectangles are worked. Even though the end result is a piece of seamless entrelac fabric, the work will not be joined until the end of thefirst tier of rectangles has been completed. Don’t worry when you have a row of base triangles that are twisted and funny looking. Everything willcome together as you continue to work.The instructions below are meant to be used as a guide only. There is morethan one way seamless entrelac can be worked, and everyone has a particular method they prefer. If you look at patterns or other instructionsfor seamless entrelac, you will more than likely notice slight differences inthe process than what I have here.These instructions can be used on any number of stitches.
Knit 1, turn. Purl 1, turn.Knit 2, turn. Purl 2, turn.Knit 3, turn. Purl 3, turn.Knit 4, turn. Purl 4, turn.Knit 5, turn. Purl 5, turn.Continue in this manner until you have worked all of the stitches required.On the last row, after you have knit the last stitch, do not turn. Begin againfor the next triangle. Continue until all base triangles are complete. After you have worked the last row of your last base triangle, turn andpurl. This will put you in position to begin working the first Right Leaning Rectangle. If you would like to change colors, do so now. Your work is stillnot yet joined; it will look like you are working flat. Don’t worry, this willchange soon.
