I bought a knitting book with a little article on this technique, and a pattern for a sweater using it. I read the article and I thought that each square a tringle were done separately, then crocheted together. Well, that wasn't it at all.
OOH NOO, I could figure out anything, even to find out how many stitches to cast-on. It did not say that anywhere.
Are these confusions from me, the book, and/or the technique itself?
Can anyone tell me where to start, even if you can refer me to a place/book/article that can help.
It it is a sweater pattern I am surprised it doesn't have any information about the cast on! Did you check the publisher website for corrections? Here (http://www.woolworks.org/entrelac.html) is a whole list of resources, but this (http://www.digitalthreads.com/knitting/entech/entech2.html) seems like a good link. You may also want to search this section of the forum for entrelac.

Kemp, thanks so much.
there really is no directions of what to cast on, and I will go to the book publishers site, if there is one.
I had two friends who also are knitters look at the direction, none of us could decern anything of any help.
I now looked out the other directions in this book...None of them are good, but the other patterns are things in which I can fill in the gaps.
I just looked at the book again..The site is www.knitinstyle.com. Anyone have experience with the company?
By-the-way, I did look at your website, and I do like the things you have. When I recover from my post-traumatic reaction to no being able to even start my new project, I will go back and look again.

I can't offer any help, Vivian, but I am here to give encouragement! I cannot get my head around entrelac no matter how much I try--even with directions that make sense to everyone else. :wall:
Keep us posted on your progress!
