Thanks for the encouragement *hugs* This scarf looks so kewl... Maybe after I finish wrestling with my tube socks and poncho, I'll free up my needles for this. I've been looking for easy to understand instructions for entrelac but there's a few that include knitting backwards **eek** One that I ran across

seems simple enough but it's still confusing to me  Huh

That's a really good tutorial on it. Just follow the directions and look at the pictures for reassurance and you'll do fine. The hardest part in any of these patterns is figuring out where you were when you put it down and start up again. Mark the place in the instructions.

I gave it a try last night and it's starting to make sense to me now  Tongue I'm going to keep on with the test swatch until I feel confident enough to start a Danica of my own with SWS.

Again, thanks for the encouragement *hugs*

thanks! i agree that the other scarves are beautiful!
okay it's official, next buy is SWS so I can do this! three balls no problem! Cheesy I so love this. That solid one is so lovely kitchkween. I am really jealous Steffania, I love that colourway. How much will you have to buy to finnish it? I have never used the lovely Noro.

Actually, any of the tutorials on entrelac would make a good scarf. I found a scarf pattern that I like better than Danica in the way it's put together. I guees it's based on the Lady Eleanor and is at http://lupinbunny.blogspot.com/2007/01/baby-e-noro-entrelac-scarf.html

It's more of a template because you can cast on whatever and make the blocks as wide as you want. With this method, you could make a wrap or baby blanket. I've also been slipping the first stitch of every row; it makes it easier to pick up the stitches for the next block. I've ordered some Rowan Tapestry for it.

Do you think it would look weird if I started slipping the first stitch of each row midway through?  I am horrible at picking up stitches and saw this technique on knitty gritty and thought it looked way easier.

I started Danica today using Noro Silk Garden Lite colourway 2014.. but I'm stuck!  The part where you pick up stitches.. I know this is the silliest question.. but.. Do you pick up the stitches on your right needle or on your left?  Do you pick up on whist looking at the right side or wrong side?  I've never done anything where picking up stitches are involved..

Okay, I'm stuck too... I have my base triangles done but I can't figure out how to take the next step. Someone needs to make a tutorial video on how to do this  Huh

The way I did it was pickup stitches with my left needle and then knit or purl it right away as the first row....not sure if this is correct but it worked out nicely!!

hmm ok for the picking up the stitches, lets pretend we just finished the right side triangle, you turn your work, knit the only stitch left of the right triangle, and then with your right needle, you stick it into your work, knit a stitch, stick it into the next loop and knit a stitch, until you have the 9 stitches you need on your needle

hopefully that was clear!

and as for what to do after the two base triangles, if you are using one kind of yarn and not switching colors then ignore when it says MC and CC and when it tells you to cut. So you just follow the instructions, turn the work to the wrong side and purl into the front and back of the first stitch, then purl 2 together, then turn to the right side and knit three stitches, and then keep going from there
