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.
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.
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.)
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?
