Debbie Bliss Entrelac Shawl
In the Baby Cashmerino book by Debbie Bliss there is a pattern for an Entrelac Shawl. The finished measurement is 28" by 28". Upon completion of the lengthy directions my piece measures 28" by 7". There are no other directions listed except for the edging. This pattern calls for 8 balls and I've used a little under 2 balls. Obviously I either make a few more of these sections or something. Does anyone know anything about this pattern? Or where I can turn to for help. Emails to the Debbie Bliss site has gotten no answers. Thanks in advance for any help. :XX: [/b]

I'm not familiar with the pattern, but...
1. Are you supposed to make 4 of the 7" sections?
2. Did you skip any pattern repeats?

Thanks for the feedback!
Thanks for the feedback but no where in the entire 3 page pattern does it say to make 3 of these strips. My concern is that I should pu and k or p from the original cast on edge. I'm still searching for someone who knows this pattern. Thanks again for the try.

I've noticed that Bliss patterns are sometimes a little cryptic. I think they're written for experienced knitters in that some parts assume that you already know what to do or that you can figure it out on your own.

I find it a little annoying, but on the other hand, it also forces me to flex my knitting muscles.

Debbie Bliss Entrelac Shawl
I tried to knit a sample, but there are no places to break the yarn and rejoin it. Very frustrating:

Knit five triangles by picking up cast on stitches, then knit a corner, but there are all those stitches left on the needles!

Love to hear someone's explanation.

You work each triangle and move on to the next, leaving stitches on the needle to be used in the next section.

If you've never knit entrelac before, you might try a sample, using one of these tutorials.
