The technique for entrelac is different from that of other types of knitting. Entrelac is composed of tiers of blocks that are set on their points, forming diamonds. Each block is worked individually and joined to the adjacent block as it is knit.
The resulting knit item looks like woven knitted strips but is actually knitted in one piece. Long repeat self striping yarn adds to the beauty, creating distinct squares of color without having to change the skein of yarn. The technique looks more difficult than it is!
