Hi there- long time lurker. I have been longing to do Lady E. for a long time now, but I haven't the slightest clue how to do entrelac. Does anyone know of an on-line tutorial? I'm sure once it gets going I'll be fine, but starting it scares the crap out of me. Plus if I invest in Noro I really don't want to frog. I bought some SWS this weekend to play with, so maybe I will practice with that...

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

Base triangle and 3 rows of squares done.

I LOVE the SWS yarn. In fact, dare I say that I like it BETTER than Silk Garden (which I have used a lot of in the past).

I can easily imagine that. I know when I first received "Scarf Stlye" as a gift that was the first project that my jaw literally dropped upon seeing. It's elegant but earthy and is just ... well... dramatic!

*goes back to waiting by the mailbox* *grumble, grumble* stupid weekend...

ETA: Thank you Calysa for posting that link. That is a great tutorial. I might play around with some Lion Wool Ease while I wait for my real yarn to get here. Smiley

I haven't tried this myself, though I might as it gets bigger and more unwieldy, but check out this video on youtube:

It looks easy.

Knitting backwards is the ONLY way to go on something like this.  I just figured it out by purling the regular way but turning the work at each step to see where the needle was going. I think I knit backwards as fast as I purl.

FWIW, I do think it's easier to do for knitters who hold the yarn inthe right hand.  Ihav enot yet mastered it with the yarn in my left hand.

Part way thru my third ball of SWS!
