The Stepping Stone Throw is what happens when Erika Knight plays around with a technique. Here, the technique is entrelac, a cool sort of knitting in a modular way. The fun really kicks in once she adds stripes and textures to the mix, along with the occasional intentionally dropped stitch that creates an openwork ladder.

We like to have a blanket on the needles at all times, and this one is the sort of addictive knitting that we really love.

Entrelac is a method of working rectangles, set on a diagonal, that look like they are woven when the piece is completed. The throw begins with a series of base triangles that are worked off the cast-on edge, beginning on the WS. Once the base triangles are complete, the first tier begins with a side triangle, then each rectangle is worked off a base triangle to the end of the row where the tier is finished with another side triangle. The next tier works rectangles that are picked up from the triangles and rectangles of the previous tier. The remaining tiers are worked in a similar manner, and the piece is finished with a tier of ending triangles.
