Entrelac isn't difficult, just takes a bit of getting used to. It's pretty much coming down to knitting only a certain number of stitches at a time, rather than the whole row or round. It takes a little bit of practice to get down, but on the whole, it certainly isn't difficult.

I think you might mean Eunny Jang's pattern in the Spring 2007 issue of Interweave Knits?

Yep they are in the Spring issue of Interweave knits...they were my first toe up socks... I didn't make them as knee highs though ....It also went faster once I started knitting backwards instead of turning...it's not hard at all...I say give it a try..

Good luck
I took classes at my LYS two years go and made an Entrelac bag. But I forgot now how I did it. I have a few books on it but I am the kind that needs to SEE it done then I get it pretty quickly. Darn...I should have made something else in Entrelac sooner so I'd remember.

Entrelac is a lot of fun and entrelac sox are even more fun. I knit one... made it a knee high, but haven't finished the second one yet. I do recommend learning to knit backwards (without turning) because turning your work every 6 stitches takes up a lot of time. Entrelac is fun because you only knit one little square or rectangle at a time so it feels like it's less work than it is.

I loved knitting my Entrelac socks! I did the same as dustinac and made them regular sock (crew) length instead of knee highs. Mine can be seen here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/84341985@N00/741982136/
