This shows the "pieces" of the entrelac knitting. Numbers show the sequence of knitting. Borders show the separate pieces of knitting. Arrows show the direction of knitting.
This is knitted with one continuous length of yarn.

the diagrams on the left show views of the tube and with the added elbow. I needed a way to diagram the tubes flat so that I could work out the order of knitting the entrelac squares.
Any time you're knitting an entrelac piece you can substitute a tube (or a tube with elbows) for one of the squares. You'll be knitting up two sides of the tube and then across the cap of the tube and then down the other two sides, then you'll be ready to keep going.
I should knit pieces to explain this... of course, I lose most of my interest in the structure once I've worked it out in my head (and on paper).

30-sq entrelac cube from edge diagram with cube edges Originally uploaded by fuzzyjayThis diagram shows a little better how the squares form a cube. The edges of the cube are superimposed over the squares that form the faces of the cube. The cube is made up of 30 entrelac squares. That makes 5 squares per face of the cube. Of course, 5 squares don't fit evenly into another square, so each face of the cube is made of 1 full square and 8 partial squares. The squares that lie entirely on one face of the cube are numbers 5, 9, 15, 20, 24, and 28 when the cube is knitted from the edge like this. If you knit the cube with 2 colors of yarn according to the diagram, opposite squares have the same color (5 and 28, blue; 9 and 24, blue; 15 and 20, pink).

I haven't knit this cube with this method yet, so don't quote me. I did figure out how to knit it from a model I made, so I'm pretty confident that it's knittable. The nice thing about starting the cube from an edge is that you can make pretty stripes on the cube by following the colors on the diagram. I'll show you later.
