Perhaps this is because I'm using 2 different colors rather than self striping??? Does anyone have any ideas. I'll try to post pics soon, but my camera is old and being really stupid right now
I've been reading the pattern and it seems to be pretty much a
typical entrelac pattern at least from the ones I have read. Did you
look at her picture tutorial that she has linked from that site? I
don't think using two colors should make any difference and with
it being garter stitch there should be no particularly apparent
right or wrong side....hmmmm of course this is all just speculation
because I just don't "get" entrelac when I read a pattern. I have
to actually knit it before it starts to make any sense hahaha...
Of the patterns I have read though, if you are using more than one
color (not a single variegated or self striping yarn) that when you
get to the point where there is only one stitch left on your needle
you just fasten it off and then pick up yoru next block of sts
with the new color otherwise the first stitch of your next color row
will be in the old color. Don't know if that helps you at all....
