But while this pattern is quite versatile, it does take more time than other patterns because of how intricate it is. The entrelac satchel pattern is made up of interconnected squares which are knit in opposing directions. On top of that, each row is comprised of smaller rows - which actually make up each of these color-blocked squares.
It might be extra effort, but the entrelac satchel is well worth it because in the end you're left with a totally unique piece. And thankfully, we've found an incredibly easy and comprehensive tutorial by Very Pink Knits to teach you this pattern - so check it out below!
