Entrelac Question
Hi all,

I am working on an Entrelac blanket as found on this website ( I have doubled the stitches cast on from 110 to 220 because I wanted it to be more of an afghan size. So instead of having 11 groups of 10 that are interweaving, I have 22 groups of 10.

I have knit the first Triangle Row A in one color, and I am doing the Row A in a second color. Everything is going great on it until I get to the end. I have gone through the part where you pick up 10 stitches down the side edges of the next triangle. Iíve turned, P10, turn, K9, sl1, k1, psso 10 times. I did not turn and repeated 19 times.

So at this point I have 10 stitches in the first color on the left needle from the Triangle Row A below (basically the first triangle I created using the Triangle Row instructions). There is a gap where I would normally pick up and knit 10 stitches from the side of a triangle, so I did that as I presume I will need to close the gap that way. Here is where Iím getting confused, and here is a picture of where Iím at:

So I picked up the ten stitches from the edge of the next triangle. Those are the light stitches on the right needle. And on the left needle in the dark stitches are the stitches from the first triangle from Triangle Row A. At first I was thinking that I would follow the next set of instructions - I have the 10 stitches Iíve picked up, then I would Turn, p2tog, p8, turn, k9, turn, p2tog, etc. But in doing that I had the 10 dark stitches on the left needle from the Triangle, and then one stitch in the light color.

This doesnít seem right? The next instructions are for the Row B and say to pick up and purl 9 stitches down the side edge of the first triangle. Iím so confused!
