Tunisian entrelac creates a beautiful diagonal basketweave look and a long-time favorite of knitters. Now you can learn this beautiful crochet stitch with the book "How to Make Easy Tunisian Entrelac". This classic crochet stitch is simplified so it is easy to learn. Dozens of photos throughout the booklet take you step-by-step through the entire process of learning the stitch with visual cues. Once you become comfortable with this technique, it will become so addicting that you won't want to stop making projects. Use this creative crochet stitch to make an afghan or any project of choice. The technique doesn't require a long starting chain, which makes it great to use with scraps of yarn. The booklet also includes three variations for the Tunisian entrelac stitch, with all variations worked from the front side only.
The booklet includes patters for the Plum Perfect Afghan, Fancy Pillow and Beautiful Baby Afghan. Each project uses a slightly different technique to help you learn the stitches. Plum Perfect Afghan uses whole entrelac blocks which create a zig-zag edge. Fancy Pillow uses fill-in triangles to straighten the edges and Beautiful Baby Afghan alters the technique by incorporating triangles into the end of the rows for a straight edge. The three patterns are designed to be completed with large Tunisian hooks, but you can use any hook diameter that fits the yarn thickness you choose. The bonus with this Tunisian technique is they use only a few stitches on the hook at one time. This means you can even try out the patterns with a standard crochet hook length. Use the "How to Make Easy Tunisian Entrelac" as a guide to learn the crochet technique, and then have fun creating your own projects.
