I’m knitting up a bunch of entrelac squares to make a blanket. I started with a provisional crochet cast on of 24 stitches (3 triangles of 8 stitches each) followed by a purl row and knit a total of 7 tiers including the top triangles. I slipped stitches at the end triangles, so joining there isn’t the problem. I couldn’t figure out how to do the top triangles in a way that would give me stitches I can pick up, and since the knit rows are diagonal, I have no idea how to join them to top triangles of other squares.
Also, it’s my first time doing a provisional cast on, so I’m not sure how to pick up those stitches. I tried on one of the squares and ended up not being able to tell where the live stitches are, mostly around the ends and at the places where the second tier begins. Can anyone help?
(Tried to attach pictures, but they’re apparently too large. I’ll upload them to imgur and post the links if that would help)
