  1. I had trouble with this pattern. It was my first attempt at entrelac and I found it frustrating -- I kept coming up with the wrong number of stitches. Upon looking at the pattern I'm wondering if there's an error. The pattern says to cast on 15 stitches but the pattern seems to be based on rectangles of 6 stitches -- should this be 5 stitches?
