Let’s Learn how to Make Entrelac Crochet Baby Blankets – The Introduction Video
Let’s begin with detailing what you’ll need to create Entrelac crochet baby blankets.
Stitches used for an Entrelac Crochet Baby Blankets
- Tunisian Simple Stitch – TSS
- Chain – ch
- Slip Stitch – sl st
Yarn, Supplies, Tools
For this project, you will need two contrasting colored yarn. For this particular crochet stitch (the Tunisian simple stitch), acrylic yarn works best. Better than cotton or wool. Not that this will create a rather thick blanket, so cost might be a factor in there somehow as well. How much you’ll need exactly of course depends on the size of the blanket.
Generally speaking, it is recommended that you purchase 1-pound skeins of both colors as it is better to have too much rather than not enough. You can use the leftovers for a matching pillow or darling baby display animal or mobile or so. By way of an example, 30oz worsted weight yarn is enough for a baby pram cover.
Crochet Hooks for Entrelac Crochet Stitches
In essence, what’s unique about Entrelac crochet is that it uses the Tunisian crochet simple stitch. You might like to purchase a special hook made specifically for this kind of crochet work. But, I suggest, experiment first before you buy this, as you don’t really ‘need’ this needle – just might find it handy.
What you do need however is a standard crochet hook that is about 1-3 sizes larger than the recommended size on the yarn. And with that, you’re good to go.
