Annabelle's Entrelac Socks
Instructor: Annabelle Dawson
lost a good friend, and great teacher, with the passing of Annabelle Dawson,
Here are a few thoughts
to prepare you for entrelac socks.
These socks are as
unlike other EL (entrelac) socks as I could make them.
The leg of the sock is
in EL st, minus beginning and ending triangles. The problem is fit, because
there is very little stretch, so they are shaped to fit the leg, wider at the
top and tapering to the ankle. It looks a little strange, but it works. The
ankle portion is 1x1 rib for proper fit and the rest of the sock is worked
conventionally, with no further EL as this would be uncomfortable.
You will need 150 gms
of 3 ply fingering, in as many different colours as you desire. I used 3.
Also a set of 2 or 2.5 mm needles. Gauge is 36 sts= 4 inches [10 cm]. You
must achieve this gauge for proper fit. This was deliberate on my part, not only
for wearabilty, bit to keep the leg in place.
