I spotted some crochet on FaceBook that was done using a technique that I don’t think I’ve seen before. It looked stunning so I Googled it and found a YouTube video that showed you how to do it. I had a little play with some scrap yarn, and once I’d got the hang of it, I made a mini blanket for one of Sammie’s little hidey-holes.
The technique is Entrelac and is a type of Tunisian crochet. It’s really easy once you’ve got the hang of it. I just need to practise more to get the tension right as I think you need to use a larger hook than you would normally.
This is my first attempt.
Some of the internal corner joins are a bit loose, but you can see it improving as I did the rounds. I did forget to put the corners on – doh! – but I’m calling that a feature.
I love the texture of it. It’s quite thick and the back looks more like knitting. I’m thinking it’d make a splendid poncho as it’d be really warm. Something to add to my wish list.
