This is my first entrelac project and I am super proud of the way it turned out!  Grin




The edges really are straighter than the picture, but because the pattern is so puffy I couldn't get it to lay flat for me (and I really don't want to block it. lol) I used Red Heart Boutique Collection Yarn. It's a prime example of why you buy the same dye lot, but after I got going I didn't mind the changes, as I thought it brought more interest to the fun pattern.

I modified a blanket pattern to create this beauty, so I just sort of winged it.  Cheesy It was really droopy when you held it up, so I just did a single crochet edging to keep it from stretching.



I love how puffy it looks and it's really warm Smiley

It turned out beautiful!

I have heard of that yarn and was wondering how it was...thanks for showing it off...the colors are beautiful!

Great job on your first (and hopefully not your last!) entrelac project!

That is absolutely beautiful -- it's especially wonderful to think that it's your first entrelac project.  Gives me hope to finally try it myself!

Thanks everyone! I used this pattern as a base to work from: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80661B.html?noImages=

This was a very, very basic entrelac pattern, that didn't require a whole lot of m1 yadda yadda yadda, like all of the others I had seen. The only downside for some people is that the edge half triangles only appear every other row, instead of two per row (one on either side). I didn't mind though  Cheesy

It looks fantastic - so whatever works! In fact, the fewer half triangles on the edge the better.

Thank you for the link.
I'll save it - and see what yarn I get for Christmas.

I just caught that I said "half triangles"...I meant "half diamonds, or triangles." oopsies  Undecided Cheesy

That is gorgeous. The last time I tried anything like that it turned out looking like a sausage!
