Entrelac KAL!
Okay so I have never done entrelac but i seen a FO of a blanket on Ravelry and fell in love with it. I started making an afghan a couple of days ago and i was wondering if anyone is interested in joining me for a KAL. you can make anything you want in entrelac, not necessarily a blanket. here's the tutorial i am using and it is WONDERFUL!!!!

I will try to post pictures soon of my progress. I am using Caron One Pound in colors white and a rosy color (cant remember the exact name now and its upstairs and i dont feel like getting it lol ). I'm on the 4th row now which basically means i have 1 row of half squares and i'm working on the 3rd row of full entrelac now. and its SO easy!!!

So, how is your afghan doing? I was thinking of making a entrelac patterned afghan also, out of Noro.
But the first row is very confusing, can I ask how many stitches did you cast on and how big will the finished afghan be.
Thanks.

hi mare, my afghan is going great!!! i love how it is turning out. i cast on 160 sts and each square is 8 so i'm making 20 squares. i have no idea how big it will be. i'm too lazy to take it out and put it on waste yarn to see the actual width (crazy i know!) at first i thought it was so confusing when i was reading the pattern but once you actually start it, you start to see how it goes together. but once you get the hang of it, its really simple! the tutorial i used is EXCELLENT. I dont think i could have gotten it right without it. I have been pretty busy all week to take a pic but i will try my best to take one tomorrow and post it so you can see my progress.

I'm casting on for one now. I'm going to try that tutorial, because I want to learn how to knit backwards. I have an entrelac blanket on needles right now, but can't knit backwards, because every other row on the squares is a mistake rib pattern rather than straight stockinette.

So, with casting on 160, approximately how long is the blanket? I want to make this for a baby, so I don't want it too big.

well it depends on the yarn/needle size you are going to use but the 160 sts is pretty wide. i wanted it big for my daughters bed. for a baby i would suggest 80-100 sts again depending on yarn/needle size. i would love to see pics of the one you are working on now
