Entrelac Knitting »
InstructionsAt least two of us have run out of the yarn used in the cast on row which is also used in the last row. I don't know about the other student but my yarn contained 93 yards and I was short probably 5 or 6 yards. I was fortunate enough to have another ball, but check your yardage or plan something different for the top triangles.

What was your inspiration?
This is a thank you gift for a super neighbor who is always RAKing me with flowers.
What are you most proud of?
I made a really big mistake right at the beginning of the 4th tier. I am really happy that Gwen helped me understand the structure of entrelac so much that I didn't have to frog the entire tier, but instead was able to fix the mistake, quite invisibly, when I came to the end of that tier and saw the very obvious and glaring error. I am even pretty pleased with the back side, a big improvement over my previous entrelac pieces.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just dive in. Gwen is a very good instructor. She gave a lot of helpful hints and tips along the way that really make the knitting fun and easy.
