This is an armhole
I'm making the Cochin Shrug, a Eunny Jang pattern which is a sleeveless shrug done with entrelac. ENTRELAC! I do love entrelac.
I selected a blue cashcotton 4 ply from Rowan in a bright blue--I know entrelac looks best in a Noro type yarn but that would be too much for me.
I have done three 'tiers' so far...basically this gets knit from armhole to armhole and the rectangles get bigger as you move toward the center of the body.
I've also been working on my book (it is going well) and taking time to read.
