Entrelac Socks

Entrelac is a knitting technique used to create a textured diamond pattern. While the end result resembles basket-woven strips of knitted fabric, the actual material comprises interconnected squares in two different orientations. Kathryn’s famous for her use of the technique and as far as we know, this is the first time someone thought to put it on socks.

Originally, this pattern called for handspun, and if that's chosen- it would be yarn between 15 and 18 wraps per inch and approximately 106 yards (97m) per ounce (28g)
