Tunisian Entrelac in a Square

This is Tunisian Entrelac that is completed in a square. It starts off with one box in the centre and then goes around, very much like a granny square.

Of the Entrelac techniques, this one is my most favourite. It is easy and you really cannot go wrong anywhere.

You can follow my video tutorial on how to do this technique. I have used this technique with afghans. You could do pillows. We also have a video how to make the flat edges that you see in the photo above.

    Hey Mikey,

    I have a challenge for you: the 45 degree diamond. Tunisian. Entrelac. Not a star, just rows.

    If anyone can do it, you can.

    Thank You Mikey, for months now I have been trying to do an entrance blanket. Since I crochet with my left hand it has been difficult. After watching many tutorials and nearly ripping my hair out I found your left handed tutorial and I finally got it. Thank you again…

    I like the look of entrelac, but am interested in making an afghan with larger squares, and maybe with a different Tunisian stitch instead of the entrelac stitch – since it curls. I also don’t want to make as many rows.

    Do you know of any entrelac patterns using squares made of Tunisian double-crochet/double stitch?

    Mickey, thanks for the tutorial on how to add the borders. Did you realize that at about 8:32, you do a yarn over before picking up the bar for the stitch, so you end up with an extra stitch?
