What materials did you use? The sample shown was made entirely with Scraplet Skeins, but you can also make just the entrelac pillow top with Scraplet Skeins (about 200 yds.), then make the overlapping back panels with coordinating yarn (about 350-380 yds. will be needed for the 2 back panels and crocheted edging). Needles: U.S. 9-10; G-H crochet hook.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you've never worked entrelac before, my best advice is to trust the directions. It will look weird, bizarre, just plain WRONG on the needles (especially early on), so if you feel like you're messing up, don't! That most likely means you're actually doing it correctly. Also, the pattern includes a schematic to give you a visual sense of the direction you should be knitting at any point. At the end of the knitting day, it really is just stockinette stitch! Oh, one more thing: again, if you've never done entrelac at all, I'd say it would be easier to start this project with something other than Scraplet Skeins; all the varying textures can make it difficult to see what you're doing, especially when picking up stitches. The gauge of this pattern is perfect for yarns like Noro's "Kureyon" and "Silk Garden" (about 110 yds./50 g); I like my pillow covers to be fairly tightly knitted.

Beautiful pillow! I like the texture from the different yarns. I think this would be the perfect introduction to entrelac.
