Entrelac knitting
Could someone please suggest a good book for this? I really want to get into this but I'll need some good guidance.

I don't know of a book, but here's a few websites that give basic instructions and pictures.

I have been trying and trying to figure entrelac out, but keep getting stuck. Thanks for all the links Jan.

Something I've found is to just jump into it, rather than try to decipher the tutorials. The January MagKnits has a pattern for an entrelac baby blanket and once I'd completed the first 3 tiers, it was easy. I'm about halfway done now and it's flying along. I rarely have to look at the pattern now.

I know I'm a little late, but if you haven't read it it is still news, to misquote the local news paper.

Thank you, Jenny. I don't know if I'm as brave as you are about jumping right in. LOL!
I went to MagKnits but didn't see that baby blanket.
