Entrelac can be knit with any type of yarn; but, it is vital to use needles suitable for the yarn used. For beginners, it is recommended to use at least two colors as it helps to see the stitches. Using a circular needle makes it a bit easier to work the pattern, but you can opt for straight needles if you are more comfortable with them.
Before casting on, you need to calculate how many blocks you want in your fabric and how many stitches will be there in each block. Example, each block contains 6 stitches, and each tier contains 5 blocks, so you cast on 30 stitches.
