I purchased this video  but it need the exact way to cast on . from beginning to the end of the row. I love this pattern but having a rough  starting this pattern. It is difficult for me to follow a written pattern.  A video is my best bet.  Helpp!!!

I have read entrelac patterns and thought I understood until I watched the turoral with Eunny Jang.  I can confidently say NOW I understand.  Thanks for making it easier to understand and want to tackle this seemingly difficult pattern.

But what about the side triangles?  That's what I don't understand from the PDF.

Absolutely perfect--if you don't understand entrelac after this you weren't watching!

This video is fantastic.  The only thing I'd like to see is how to start it from beginning to end.  I need to see how the foundation is done.  This is where I'm having major problems in trying to get it work for me. 

I REALLY want to knit entrelac but so far, I'm still stumped.  Is there a possibility of seeing a beginning to end video of this process?

Hi Eunny, This is a fantastic way to knit, but........................................being that you are left handed I think and I am right handed really messed with my short term memory loss, LOL. You hold your yarn so differently than I was taught, this is going to take me some time to learn but I love it. I am old school but watching you knit  makes me feel so inept but I will keep trying until I get it, I love to get stuff from you, I love to learn being that I taught special ed for 8 years. Your knitting looks so professional and neat looking keep up the fantastic work .

I just watched your video about entrelac knitting.   I wondered if knitting it  K,P,K,P  would make it reverable which would be good for a scarf.  Thanks for making these available.

Wow!  I'm an experienced knitter.  I started an entrelac scarf and was quite frustrated by following the pattern.  This video made entrrelac so easy to understand and simple!  Thank you so much Eunny, and Knitting Daily!

Wow!  This is the first time I've ever heard of entrelac knitting.  I'm going to have to give it a try.

Thanks for the great video, Eunny.  I have a pattern for a beautiful Entrelac shawl using Noro Silk Garden yarn.  I've started and ripped out so many times...  Your video is just what I need to get that project started again!

This is a great video.  It is easily understood and her method of carrying her yarn resolved a tension issue I have had for years.  Thank you so much!

The work is most intriguing, and as another watcher stated, it is the first time Entrelac has made sense.  However, your title indicates that is a 'getting started' video, and oddly enough, it does NOT show that at all.  How do you set up the first (starting) row?  For that matters, how do you 'end' the piece?  The actual Entrelac makes perfect sense, but I do not see anything to show how to 'Get Started'!

That is a great tip. Now I understand entrelac. I may have to knit my youngest grandson a small scarf with this pattern.

on Aug 13, 2010 1:55 PM

Getting started ? would have been nice if it would have actually started on the beginning with cast on and first row.

How to make the base foundation instructions are in the mail I received from Knitting Daily informing me of the Entrelac video.

I obviously need to start at some point before this level.  How did she cast on and do the triangles?  Was that last row on the video done knitting the pink diamonds one at a time?

I think the patter is beautiful but would have loved to see how the whole thing was started. I wish she would of showed that.

Hi Eunny Jang,

I am interested an entrelac knitting scarf pattern.  How are you made to do an entrelac knitting for a scarf?  I am deaf.

 

Thank you,

Great video, clears up some unknowns.

To get started or set up your base triangles, SEE just below the video window, there is Entrelac: Basic Principles and within that info is Base Triangles.

Only difference is in the video she is using 6 stitches per block. The Base Triangles info has you working 8 stitches for each block.

Clearest vid I've yet seen on this. Maybe Entrelac is not so scary after all!

Nicely done once the piece is already underway, but how do you start?  How do you make the first color transition?

I can't wait to try this!  It seems like I never have more than a few minutes here and there to knit, so these small squares look great for people like me who frequently lose their place in a pattern.

I've tried many times to understand Entrelac with no progress.  This video is great.   Now I understand and can't wait to get started.
