I have been asked to make a knitted owl stuffie for my friend's baby (due sept I think). I want to do the front of the chest as entrelac because I think it'll look impressive, and be cute, but I am intimidated.

does anyone know of a good, SIMPLE tutorial about entrelac please? also anyone who has done it... is it as scary and confusing as it looks?!

thanks!

Knitty Otter has an amazing entrelac scarf tutorial.  I've made a few scarves and a headband/ear-warmer thing using her guide as a template.  I have not used it to incorporate entrelac into other projects, but I imagine that it wouldn't be too hard.  I would recommend doing, if not a full scarf, a short bit of entrelac using her guide and see what you think.

The key for me was not to worry about anything except the step at hand.  When I looked at the full pattern as a whole, it was confusing, but taking it step by step as I knitted, no individual step was hard.

Here's the url

if it's going to be entrelac in the round, I learned from this baby hat pattern - http://users.netaccess.co.nz/major/freepatt/patt02.htm   one tip, when you put down the knitting, put a safety pin or something in the next stitch you need to knit. It'll give you a point of reference to figure out where to start.
