Easy step-by-step instructions for making woven-look entrelac designs for afghans, pillows and more! The beautiful diagonal basketweave look of entrelac has long been a favorite of knitters. Here, this classic technique is simplified for Tunisian crochet. Photos take you step by step through the process. Tunisian crochet entrelac is great for scrap projects and any yarn with any size Tunisian Hook.
Included are instructions for three versions of Tunisian entrelac. All versions are always worked from the front; work is not turned. Plum Perfect Afghan is made with whole entrelac blocks resulting in zig-zag edges. Fancy Pillow is made in the same manner as the afghan, except it is finished with fill-in triangles to create straight edges. Beautiful Baby Afghan is made with end triangles worked as a part of every other row, creating straight sides. Fill-in triangles on ends of afghan are added last.
