WIP: entrelac crochet

Hi everyone!

Do you know what’s really hard to do on a Monday morning?

Take a good photo of a piece of crochet that curls up like nobody’s business! *breathe in, breathe out*

I really really love entrelac crochet, but BOY does it curl up on you! I am going to block it within an inch of its life when it’s finished, I can tell you that! ;)

But all is well after one look at the progress; you can already see the yarn change colour ever so gradually… Lovely don’t you think? :)

This Tunisian entrelac is actually pretty easy to do, once you get the hang of it. When I started this piece I had to rip back twice and start over thrice because it just wasn’t working! I thought I knew how to do this but I was sooo wrong. But as you can see, I totally get it now ;)

But fear not! Once this piece is finished, I will show you the correct way to do this, and it will be simple and easy to understand with LOTS of photos :) Of course there’s a knit version as well, which my good friend Sarah from Crafts from the Cwtch is making.

So take your pick: are you going to do entrelac the knit way or the crochet way? :)
