Year of Projects: Crochet Master Class – Entrelac, Take 2

This post contains affiliate links.

This post is part of my Crochet Master Class series.  You can read my previous post on crochet entrelac here.

I’ll admit that the holiday crafting crunch time has arrived, and thus, I have not made any progress on my entrelac project.  I decided to share some entrelac inspiration though!

I looked on Ravelry and did a Google search, and it really does seem like most crochet entrelac patterns use Tunisian crochet.  I was able to find a few interesting patterns that are using standard crochet stitches and not Tunisian.

Joyce Wyatt may be the entrelac master featured in Crochet Master Class, but Carolyn Christmas is the designer I think of as the entrelac crochet master.  I mentioned last week that I learned Tunisian crochet entrelac from her booklet, How to Make Tunisian Crochet Entrelac.  I was pleased to see she has several single crochet entrelac offerings on her Gourmet Crochet website.

I fell in love with the Around the World Rectangle Baby Afghan from this booklet, but then I saw the Giant Dahlia Afghan.

From Entrelac Giant Dahia Afghan by Carolyn Crochet. The booklet includes both single crochet and Tunisian crochet versions.

Carolyn also has a great felted handbag.

The pattern booklet is available for sale here.  None of these patterns are available for digital download, but I think I may order one of the booklets since I have been so pleased with other booklets I purchased from Carolyn in the past.

There were three other patterns I found using single crochet entrelac.  These are all available online for free.

Entrelac sock by Jen Bianchi is available on her Knitters’ Row blog.  I’m pretty sure you can make two, even though the pattern title is singular ;).

Leslie Ann Bestor‘s Crocheted Felted Entrelac Handbag is available for download on the WEBS yarn store website.

The Enticing Baby Afghan is available to download from the Lion Brand Yarn website (registration required).  As a side note, it really disappoints me that Lion Brand still doesn’t list the designer’s name on their patterns.  As far as I can tell, all of their competitors (e.g., Red Heart, Caron) include the designer name.  (Stepping off the soapbox now.)

I found one lovely looking paid download entrelac pattern, the Felicity Shawl by Christie Pruitt.  You can buy the pattern on Ravelry or KnitPicks.

This was the only crocheted entrelac pattern I found which didn’t seem to use only Tunisian crochet or only single crochet.  The stitch pattern looks really fun.

Do you have any other crochet entrelac patterns to recommend?
