PDF Pattern, Entre'lac Knitted Afghan w Fringe by NCTeddyBearLady


This full color pattern makes one entre'lac (basket weave) afghan with fringe. The finished afghan measures 45" wide and 50" long, not counting the fringe. Even though this afghan has a patchwork look, it is not knitted in pieces and assembled after. This distinctive basket weave pattern is knitted in successive rows of inter-connected rectangles beginning and ending on a foundation row of rectangles framed in sensuously soft strands of midnight blue angora and Egyptian cotton. The color selection for the rectangles is totally random.

A word of caution about the use of this pattern. You have my permission to make all the afghans you wish from this pattern for yourself or to give away. You do not, however, have permission to make commercial use of it.

I reserve that right solely for myself.

You do have my permission to let this pattern be a means for finding your own artistic voice. Vary the design of the afghan so that it is no longer recognizable as my work and I wish you G-d's speed. Change a stitch here and there for the sake of calling it your own and, as I learned to say in Turkey, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your nether regions! . . .And. . .keep a watchful eye over your shoulder for my lawyer. As they say in department store dressing rooms, violators will be prosecuted.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Several years ago my husband and I remodeled our house. After all the dust settled, I was reluctant to put our 25 year old sofa in my new living room. I purchased an ox blood leather sofa to replace the old upholstered piece. The first winter after the redo, I realized that leather can be really cold to sit on when it is cold outside. That spring we made a trip to Myrtle Beach and I found an absolute gem of a yarn shop. Much to my long suffering husband's consternation, I spent nearly three hours picking out yarn to make an afghan to warm up the sofa in our mountain home.

Once I got the afghan finished, my dear friend Cheri and my niece both liked it so much they asked me to make them one. My daughter-in-law liked it too but wanted to do the knitting herself. She is a darling who makes my son very happy so I drafted a pattern for her. At her suggestion, I have listed it in my studio.

Materials Used

Yarn Substitutions:
±200 yards each, worsted yarn in 2, like colors.
±300 yards each, worsted yarn in 10 coordinating colors.
±100 yards each, novelty yarn or ribbon in 5 different colors and/or styles

More Info

Please note that red is an impossible color to photograph. Add to that a dark navy blue border and it is difficult to see detail accurately. For that reason, I have included several similar pictures using different lighting. This pattern assumes the reader knows the basics of knitting and therefore makes no attempt to explain them. It is strongly suggested that you read through this entire pattern before beginning your project.
