How to knit entrelac on straight needles

In this DROPS video we show how to knit entrelac on straight needles. Entrelac is when you knit squares in multiple directions.

First you make a row of triangles, then you pick up sts along the sides, work half squares at each side and full squares in the middle.

If each square should be i.e 5 sts wide, then you cast on 5 sts for each triangle to start with. So for 3 triangles you cast on 15 sts.
