Felted Entrelac Tote

Here's another one of my finished objects. I have a few more to upload to the gallery. But I am pacing them so I don't hog the homepage. Smile

This is Felted Entrelac Tote, done in Wool of the Andes. Both pattern and yarn came from KnitPicks. Their website described this as a nice introduction to entrelac. So I went for it. But either because I was too new to knitting, or some instructions were missing, I had difficulties figuring out how to continue in a couple of spots. BUT, since it was a felted project, I just fudged it. I think it turned out OK. It's now my favorite bag to carry knitting stuff around the house. Felting the bag was FUN (my first time)! I think I checked the washer at least 10 times throughout the process. Wool of the Andes worked really well.

Way cool tote!  how hard was the entrelac portion?  that's the next thing on my "need to learn"list?

Fabulous, well done. I can't figure Entrelac out, I started a scarf a year ago & it's in a basket waiting until I have time to figure it out. Perhaps I should try this as a test piece!

Thanks, guys! That was the only entrelac pattern that I've ever tried. I think it was quite easy except the parts where I thought some instructions were missing. But I think it's easy to figure out how to keep going. In any case, you will definitely get to know how entrelac works.
