The crochet entrelac is a rather young technique that is rising in popularity in the crochet world. The entrelac stitch creates a visually alluring graphic texture because of the repeated colored square pattern. You can use this fabulous stitch for pillows or accessories like gloves and scarves.
HOW TO WORK THE CROCHET ENTRELAC?
First and foremost, the entrelac stitch requires some knowledge of the basics of Tunisian stitches. The entrelac is a type of pattern that consists of differently colored diamonds that are organized in a repeating pattern to create an attractive graphic texture to any crochet project.
The entrelac crochet stitch is worked row by row or in the round like a granny square with each round a different color. What makes this stitch enticing to the human eye is the alternating of the two, three, or four colors of yarn. A regular hook will work fine for the entrelac stitch.
One fun project that incorporates a lot of the entrelac stitch is crochet entrelac stitch pillows. This is beautiful for home decor that will add a certain elegance and warmth to your home. Earthy colors and pure-neutral colors would look best on these pillows. Although it may be time (and yarn) consuming, you could make a decorative twin or queen size blanket for your bed to cuddle up in.
