Entrelac Technique
Is there a video on this technique? I have tried it and can't get it, it says to turn after 2 stitches and that would mean stitching into the same 2 stitches wouldn't it ??? How would you get the the end of you cast on stitches??
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Sorry! I've never done entrelac, but I found a website that might shed some light on it for you till someone comes along that knows more.

While it's not a video, this site might simplify it somewhat for you.

Tried again the other day and think I might be getting the hang of it other than my one side is rounded not straight like in the book so I think I am pulling my yarn too tight Will keep at it though til I get it.

I do entrelac, and as you make your sections, they'll look long and out of shape. Don't sweat it. When you work more squares, triangles, whatever, they'll take their shape.

I couldn't get Enterlac for the longest time.. and finally I decided to just do what they said instead of reading to much into the instructions it looked weird and out of shape so I just knew this wasn't working either.. but the further I went just looking at one row at a time and not ahead to start second guessing myself again.. it all came together.. I was in shock lol... I'd just keep going and going it should pull itsellf together
