How to Crochet: Tunisian Entrelac (Part 2)

By Candace – 3 Comments

Now that you have completed your first row in How to Crochet: Tunisian Entrelac (Part 1), you have a choice for your subsequent rows. You can turn your work (results in wrong sides being visible in the final project, but leaves fewer ends to leave in if working in one color). Or you can finish off then start at the beginning of the previous row without turning (leaves you with all right side rows but leaves more ends to weave in. This tutorial uses the latter method, but they both follow the same basic idea.

To see a left-handed view, hover your cursor over the photos.

First Square
Start by chaining the number of stitches in a single row of a square. Since I’m using 4-stitch squares, I ch 4.

Forward Pass: YO, pull up a loop in second ch from hook and each ch across, pull up loop in first st on the edge of the first square in the previous row.

Return pass: (YO, pull through 2 loops on hook) across until one loop remains on hook.

      Hi Dreama,

      Unfortunately, I can’t answer that. That’s something you will have to determine after some swatching. I hope the formula from part 1 of the tutorial helps!
