This is made in Ecru Lambs Pride Bulky. It is an easy introduction to entrelac. Works up fairly quick. It took me only 2 skeins to make. I would have a little more on hand in case it is needed. I love Lambs Pride Bulky and this is a perfect project for it.

The brown is made using two strands of worsted held together. I wanted to see if this would work as a choice. It is NOT Lambs Pride Worsted, just a generic wool worsted weight yarn.
The Front is made in entrelac, with sts picked and worked out in the round. These sts are then bound off to the last side and these are worked up for the back. This way there are only 3 sides to sew up, instead of 4.

The Back has one larger single leaf.
I like the brown one, as far as color, but I did not have any Lamb’s pride in Brown. Besides, the ecru one shows the sts better in photography.
