Does anybody know a good place to find a simple entrelac blanket pattern? Cause the ones I most found were Baby blankets and I want to make sort of a throw one. So can any one help me

Take a baby blanket pattern and just add more stitches to make it larger. Or make the squares with 12 sts instead of 8 or something. I used this tutorial (http://wolfandturtle.net/Yarnpath/index.php/Yarnpath/comments/all_aboard_the_entrelac_express/) as a basis and made one with 15 sts on large needles.

Sue, your link took me to wolfandturtle.net and a notice that the domain was expired. I couldn't find an entrelac tutorial. :(

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't know the site had expired. Just about any tutorial will do though, here's some others which I think are still good. Even if some are scarf size, you can CO more stitches and make more blocks or larger blocks with more stitches.

I thought you'd want to know that the link wasn't what you thought it was. Sneaky things, url links, one day they're one thing, tomorrow they're something else.

There are several patterns over on Ravelry if you search entrelac throw. I like Sue's idea of the larger rectangles for the throw. It gives a softer look.
Here's an Ann Norling pattern and hers are usually very clear.
