entrelac question
I'm in Minnesota visiting my daughter and on the road trip from Colorado I managed to stop and two Nebraska shops and one in Sioux Falls, SD. Ok yes I spent too much money. I got the Jojoland Autumn Shawl pattern and yarn but I've NEVER done entrelac and am a bit confused.

I'm to cast on 200. The first row group is 25 triangles. Row 1 (rs) k 1, turn
row2: Pl, turn and for all wrong side rows, purl the SAME NUMBER of sts as you knit in the previous row.
row3: sl, kl, turn
row 4, DO I PURL 2 because of the slip or just PURL 1?
NEXT question - Do you that knit entrelac turn all the time or do you purl backwards?

For R 4 you would p2, the slip st is counted as a stitch. Many people do knit backward, I didn't find it all that much easier than turning, but I was only working across 30 some stitches, not 200.

I just finished an entrelac project and I used the knitting backward method. I liked it better instead of all the turning. I was making a scarf and I did to a little turning at the very beginning and very ends of the rows, but not for each individual diamond section. If you don't know how to knit backward, here is a great link to a YouTube video on how to do it.

Entrelac is actually very easy once you get the general idea down. Good luck and I can't wait to see your finished shawl. The pattern is very nice.
