Entrelac Knitting: Base Triangles

Starting the First Entrelac Triangle
Starting an Entrelac Base Triangle

Knit two stitches to start forming the entrelac base triangle.

All entrelac knitting begins with a base of triangles; the next set of squares is worked by picking up stitches along the side and working them together with the previous stitches to form the knit fabric.

But lest we get ahead of ourselves, the base triangles (and the rest of the work, too) are made by working short rows, in which you work some stitches and turn the work and work back without completing a full row of knitting.

To begin forming the first triangle, simply knit the first two stitches on the needle.
