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.
