My second entrelac project after Danica. I really like the technique, but I think of the two projects I liked Danica more. I bought this odd ball yarn with the intention of making a Calorimetry with it, but I made one of those earlier in the week for a friend and the Quant entrelac was a-calling. I am unsure if I will wear it since it is flashy and not actually that warm; I have never really loved headbands. It is cute objectively speaking.
Quant, started July 10th 2008, finished July 12th 2008
Pattern: Quant by Star Athena, Knitty Winter 2007
Yarn: Wisdom Yarns Sonnet #715 (50g 93yds/85m) – 1 skein
Needles: #7/4.5mm HiyaHiya long circs
Modifications: Since I did not have enough yarn and was afraid of running out, I knit only 12″ instead of the 15″ called for and then blocked like mad. I used mightbekatrina’s mods to make it symmetrical at the end:
Ending with Section 1:
Set up: (RS) pick up 5 stitches along triangle edge (6 total), pass last one back to ssk as usual. Turn.
Row 1: (WS) p to last 2 st, p2tog
Row 2: (RS) sl1, k to last st, ssk
Repeat these 2 rows until 1 st remains.
Repeat this procedure for the other two triangle ‘holes’. 1 st will be left on the needle. Turn.
(WS) Pick up 17 more stitches along the edge: 5 in the first triangle, 6 in the other two. 18 sts total.
Row 1: (RS) k1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
Row 2: (WS) p all sts
Repeat these 2 rows until 6 sts remain.
(RS) ssk, sl1, k2tog, psso, k1 (or any other 3 st decrease you like). 3 sts .
Work in I-cord to match the other side. BO.
Cost of Project: $4 for yarn.
Would I knit it again? Yes, and maybe try using DK weight yarn.
