Entrelac Tote

During vacation, I had the inspiration to learn entrelac knitting. This technique is fun and surprisingly easy. After learning on my sample I posted a few days ago, I found this cute tote and finished it yesterday.

The 1st pic shows the knitted yarn before it is felted. Then the 2nd one is the wool being washed in HOT water to shrink it and felt it. Then the last one is how I laid it out to dry so it would have the folds on the sides.

Last night, I sewed on handles and can now use it as a tote or a purse. It was a fun and fast project. The longest part of it was waiting for the felt to dry. If you know how to knit, then I encourage you to try entrelac. If I can do you, so can you!
