Entrelac knitting

Years ago I knitted a jumper for myself using this method. It looks like patchwork and I think it was quite popular in the 80s. It was really easy to do - and I'm not a natural knitter - and also looked effective. Does anyone know where I can get a pattern now. My friend made a fabulous jacket with it, but neither of us can find the pattern. I had thought of making some cushions if I could find the method again.
Thanks Rosie smile

Masses of info on the net about this, have you tried Google? The Ravelry website would be a good starting point.

I'd forgotten about this technique so looked it up. There's a little video on Youtube:

Oh yes I remember knitting a lovely jumper using pastel colours for my DD in the 80's it was very effective.

I hope one of those topics will be useful for everyone.
