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.

What Tunisian hooks do you recommend?
Something bamboo or wooden. The quality of the hook matters a lot.
I’ve been watching a few of your tutorials. I really enjoyed the ones I watched. Especially on the different ways to make the crisscross Stitch. I was trying to figure out a stitch that would go really well with it. I’m in the process of trying to design a dress for a 2yr old toddler. I was using the crisscross and single stitches on the top. Now on the skirt I want something different. I really like the puff crisscross stitch. Would you have any advise on that?
I haven’t done children’s clothing in so long. It depends on you if you want the lacey or solid look. Lacy sends people over the top with catching fingers and toes and solid may be too hot for some people in warmer climates. I feel it’s like an ever losing battle in the decision.
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?
Love It love it LOVE IT. Your tutorials are great, thanks so much. Jo Ann
