Have you tried Entrelac knitting? It has been on my bucket list for a while, and this summer I bit the dust and was determined to learn how to create this amazing texture.
I spent several days (read weeks) reading about Entrelac knitting. There are many resources online to assist you in the process. The best one I found was from Planet Purl. She has a great YouTube video set that walks you through step by step. There are 6 videos in total. Here is a link to the first video (here).
The instructions show a cast on of 15 stitches, but I knew I needed bigger, so I began with 30 stitches (the size of most of my dishcloths). I very quickly realized that it would be too big, so I ripped it out and started over.
I found that a 20 stitch cast on worked great. The video was easy to follow along with and pause it as needed. If you haven’t tried entrelac, I highly encourage giving it a try. I will definitely be using it again for a much larger project.
