i actually met my boyfriend and lots of close friends through WoW.  if you actually liked the game, it's not horrible at all.  i think your needlework is adorable, but i don't agree with the statement. ;[

Interestingly enough, there is an extremely similar pattern on this website: http://www.oneskeinwonders.com/patterns/shrug.php

i finished mine and a long time ago, but forgot to take pictures before i gave it to my friend. Sad

however, i made modifications during the bind off to make both edges symmetrical.  pretty much, i continued the entrelac pattern as normal, but bound off the edges of the squares so that the whole edge was straight.  in the end, there was one stitch remaining so i picked up the rest of the stitches along the edge and continued with the decreases i needed to make the triangle.  i must say, the end result was extremely satisfying.

thanks so much guys!  i definitely didn't expect this thread to be revived, but it feels great to have people see it two years later and still like it. Cheesy

i started it two nights ago with a thin yarn and small needles to get it smaller, but i couldn't notice the difference between the squares. i thought it was because my yarn was a solid colour, and started again with a variegated (thicker) yarn. it looks better now, and i know i'm getting almost everything right, but the sides of the squares where i pick up stitches doesn't show up much. the sides where i join the squares appears elevated, giving that look of woven strips, but the other sides are flat...
when i pick up the 6 stitches, i pick 1 up, purl or knit it, then do the next. is it right? i couldn't find a way of picking all 6 up and then purling or knitting, because the yarn tail ended up at the other side...

You should be picking the stitches up, then knitting back across.
I found an article that explains with lots of pictures:

Good luck, and I hope you'll show us the final product!

i'm pretty sure "pick up and knit" or "pick up and purl" does not mean to pick up the stitches and knit/purl them directly afterwards.  it's just to indicate how you pick up the stiches -- knitwise or purlwise.

the link that is posted above shows how to pick up stitches for a button band, but for entrelac you should only pick up stitches through the back loop like this:

picking up stitches through the back loop causes the panels to appear woven.

hope that helps. Smiley

i'm making one as a christmas gift for a friend.  Smiley

does anyone think that it's too wide?  i'm using size 7's in hopes it'll be a tad bit thinner.

and you could always fill it with water in case you get thirsty.
