What are you most proud of? This is not a quick knit and took quite some time....about a month. I am a fast knitter and as I make a living selling patterns and finished items, I do spend a great deal of time in "my chair" knitting or hooking away! I love how it turned out. The pattern calls for an I-cord edging, but I wanted a slightly larger border so a crochet hook and some single crocheted rows provided a nice edge without taking away from the lovely blanket itself.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern is very well written and the color changes keep it interesting. You are actually only knitting 10 stitches at a time, so if you find you need to frog back, it is not so daunting. Craftsy has some workshops/classes for you if you are new to entrelac and need to see the jist of how entrelac works. There is always YouTube for videos as well.

Lovely colors! The crochet border looks really nice too, finishes the blanket off beautifully.

Your blanket is gorgeous, love the color-changing yarn and your fab crochet edging. I'm working on one now with yellow and blue, on row 19 with 8 more rows to go. You're right, it's a slooow go but so worth it.

Thank you for the kind words. if you know how to knit backwards, it speeds things up a bit. You can go on YouTube for a video to learn or refresh your skills.
