Once Around the Block
The entrelac baby blanket is finished.
I used about 5 1/2 skeins of Mochi Plus, which translated to a 33″ by 23″ blanket before blocking. But after blocking…
…it turned into a 36″ square piece of fabric. Not too shabby.
I cast on 77 stitches, and knit your standard entrelac with 11 blocks of 7 stitches each. I only had four skeins of yarn at first, but I had to order two more from YarnCountry.com after realizing that amount wouldn’t suffice.
There’s not a lot to say about this blanket, other than it’s going in the mail first thing tomorrow! I hope my recipient likes it! (Also, I hope she doesn’t read my blog, otherwise it’ll be a bit less of a surprise.)
I’ll close with a couple more glamor shots.

Really lovely! I’m all about the brightly-colored baby things.
(Also… that last photo would make lovely computer wallpaper…!)
I love the colors of the blanket, very fun, bright and I both baby and mom will enjoy.
That is beautiful!! Entrelac is one thing I haven’t ventured into yet. I’ve been knitting for 10 years, and I just learned how to cable last month. At this rate, I might be 60 by the time I learn to do Entrelac
Thanks so much! Entrelac is really not all that difficult — I recommend you give it a try!
What size needle did you use?
Oh gosh… it’s been so long I couldn’t really tell you. Probably up a size from whatever’s recommended by the yarn, but gauge isn’t too important on this pattern, anyway!
