Tunisian crochet entrelac may be worked with any yarn and appropriate hook size. Generally, best results are obtained with any type of Tunisian crochet when it is worked with a larger hook than you would use for traditional crochet with a particular yarn. The projects in this pattern were made with Worsted Weight Yarn and size K Tunisian hook.
Tunisian crochet is normally worked with a long, straight Tunisian hook; however, since Tunisian entrelac is worked with only a few crochet stitches on the hook at a time, regular Crochet Hooks may be used. The technique is Tunisian, but the hook need not necessarily be a Tunisian hook.
