I don't have a problem with authority, I just have a problem with people telling me what to do.





You took the words right out of my mouth! It would be a great way to use up leftover yarn. I'm gonna have to wait to get started on this pattern!

are you sure they're not just using variegated yarn? just making sure. if they are using solid colors and alternating colors in each row, I'd like to know how they're doing it also. They are possibly adding the new color @ the beginning of the row where they want a different color.



I've knitted several with variegated yarn. I know that some people use noro or another striping yarn when knitting traditional entrelac and have seen color changes that way. I'm wondering how to accomplish the color change if I wanted to do the first row of triangles in one color and then switch off for the second row with the increasing/descreasing triangles and squares and then go back to the first color for the row of squares.

I say, give it a go! And share pictures. :) This is somewhat off topic but have you seen the ninepatch dishcloth pattern posted here?

I have pics of the garterlac and the ninepatch on my blog. I'm doing a ninepatch right now. I think a bunch of squares of the garterlac and ninepatch would make a really neat blanket!
I agree with Rhoda, give it a go and share pics!!

AR,

I saw your ninepatch on your blog! I was so excited to see one done because I hadn't seen any yet other than the md ones. Ohhh, you're so smart -a bunch of squares of the garterlac or the ninepatch would make a great blanket and you wouldn't even need to seam them together! Genius.[!]

Might also make a cute small rug. Like the ballband rug in the MD book.

Yeah, a small rug is a great idea. I could use one in the kitchen or bath. I crocheted (spelling?) red around the edge of the black and white ninepatch. It looks good. I got more cotton for more garterlacs, and some other dishcloths. I'm addicted to them right now.lol
