FO - Garterlac Dishcloth

Just wanted to share my first try at entrelac. It is a dishcloth. I used this pattern at www.criminyjickets.blogspot.com. It wasn’t as difficult as what I thought. Now I think I can do a scarf.

Pretty! :inlove:

Great job! That’ll probably end up being my first entrelac, since I’m too afraid of trying something like Danica.

That’s pretty!

:cheering: You did a great job! :notworthy: I want to learn how to do that too!

:cheering: Definitely a testament that the variegated yarns really pop using that technique. Very switched on! Great job! :cheering:

So cool!!!

That is great! I love the bright colors!

It came out beautiful. I hope to one day be able to do that :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone for the nice comments

That’s nice! :cheering: I too made one of these as my first entrelac project, and found it to be much easier than I had thought it would be.

Great job! Right now I am working on my first entraloc project and so far I’m really liking it!

Great job!! I need to do something like that to practice entrelac before I start my Lady Eleanor in May… :slight_smile:

well it looks difficult to me, so bravo! Haven’t got a clue how you did this.
Your dishes will love it!

This garterlac dishcloth inspires me to finally tackle the mysteries of Entrelac! Thanks for your help on the blogspot! I appreciated the PDF being available. Adobe 8 is soooo useful for printing just what ya want!

Wow!

I tried n tried n tried :pout: …finished these steps in blue:

[color=blue]Very loosely, cast on 24 stitches.
Bottom Triangle:
K 1, turn, K 1, turn.
K 2, turn, K 2, turn.
K 3, turn, K 3, turn.
K 4, turn, K 4, turn.
K 5, turn, K 5, turn.
K 6, turn, K 6, turn.
K 7, turn, K 7, turn.
K 8, do not turn.
Repeat the directions for the Bottom Triangle
twice more – three triangles in total. They
look a little twisted right now. Don’t worry;
they’ll sort themselves out as you go along.
Turn and make an Increasing Side Triangle.
Increasing Side Triangle:
K 1, turn, K-FB, turn.
K 1, SKP, turn, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 2, SKP, turn, K 1, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 3, SKP, turn, K 2, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 4, SKP, turn, K 3, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 5, SKP, turn, K 4, K-FB, K 1, turn.
K 6, SKP, turn, K 5, K-FB, K 1, turn._
K 7, SKP, do not turn.
Now make a Square.
Square:[/color]
[color=red]Pick up 8 stitches along the side of the previous row [/color][color=blue],turn.

  • K 8, turn, K 7, SKP, turn. *
    Repeat between the *s another seven times,
    but do not turn at the end of the eighth
    repeat.
    Make another Square…[/color]

However…I ended up with a perfect open-top cube…a three dimensional box.
I think my error is not understanding the directions I have highlighted in red.

Hmmm…I feel like a bonehead! I frogged it all…and put it away for now.
Any input? Maybe I should take it to my LYS. Then owner is helpful…and teached entrelac concepts.

Great job!!! I completed the same pattern for my first entrelac project.

ArtLady - I had to frog it several times before finally getting the hang of it. I found this website that helped a lot. Check it out and I hope it helps!!!
