I would have them both going because you might decide you want to work on something besides entrelac.

Row 30: *P1, K2, P11, K2 repeat from *, end with CO 3 sts after last P11
Repeat rows 21 through 30 until desired length and width. P one row.

do when you get to these last rows, you just do a garter stitch? Or is there something different with a border?

Sorry I've never done anything but scarfs and dishcloths, and one hat!

You can really do any border that you like, I just happen to prefer garter stitch.

I tried making this shawl last year. I made abog booboo and ended up frogging. I haven't picked it back up since but maybe I could now that others are into it

I have a question about row 29.. and forgive me if it's a silly one..


I don't have enough stitches to finish the row.. mine ends with knit 4. Did I do something wrong or is that right?

Also, am I right by doing the backward loop cast on to cast on the stitches at the end of rows?

Yeah, that's the one I've been using, I don't really see how you could do any other one.

I keep running out of stitches at the ends of rows

I must have done something wrong

when I repeated row 21 I didn't have enough to do the (k,yo,k)
then on row 22 I'm missing the last p3..

what am I doing wrong??

I have the opposite problem! I got to row 12 and ended up with 2 extra stitches so I frogged it (again)
