I learned to do the single crochet entrelac. While it is not knitting you can purchase How To Make Single Crochet Entrelac either at anniesattic.com or www.gourmetcrochet.com

I made a blanket for my dog and he loves it. In the picture of him with the blanket you can barely see him and according to my better half he stayed under the blanket until they both got up from a nap.

Lovely job!

I love books, but I have a computer. I must justify its expense by using it, instead of buying more books. So, here are some instructive links for the same work:

Thanks I had checked out you tube and didn't quite understand what they were doing. I will check out the links and I do agree with you about the computer. I use mine for many patterns and how to videos.

Knitcorchetlover,
I was just reading about Entrelas last night. I think it was crochet. It is interesting.

Yes it was very interesting. Easy to learn the single crochet entrelac. Jessica-Jean the links you provided had the tunisan entrelac crochet. What I did was single crochet entrelac which is done with a regular crochet hook.

I am now learning the knit entrelac. I am having some fun with it. The only problem I have is I am getting holes. I think I have figured it out though. The only difference is I found a class for knit entrelac at planetpurl.com. Video and written instructions. The site is a free join and so is the class. Just google knit entrelac and the complete 6 part class is on you tube. I then went to planet purl to get the written instructions as a handout.

Will post picture when done with what I am practicing. It will have different variegated yarn and I am going to give this one to the dog also. He is allergic to cotton so have to make several more blankets for him with yarn that is not and has no cotton in it. But of course the yarn I am using now I have no idea the fiber content. My step daughter returned yarn I gave her and it doesn't have the bands on it. Hopefully no cotton.

A lady after my own heart! I hate to pay for patterns that you can usually find for free. This is such a wonderful site.

Oh my gosh ~ that picture made me laugh out loud! It's a great one & the blanket stitch is really interesting. It turned out just beautiful.

Great job. Glad you enjoy doing that stitch.
And the blanket must be perfect too snuggle under. Pup sure seems happy taking his nap!!

Thanks for sharing,

Beautiful! There's also something called Tapestry Crochet, I've seen it used as a design on a crocheted bowl, it's similar to entrelac. I haven't tried it, but have a book on it and hope to teach myself. Has anyone tried it?

How is tapestry crochet similar to entrelac?

In tapestry crochet, you work over all the colours you're carrying until you need a particular one.

I agree I have patterns for tapestry crochet and still don't get it. I understand the carry but as for how it comes out on the other side I have no clue lol.

Thank you all for the comments. Right now his blanket is over the back of the couch. He lays on it when he feels like it. That's a Japanese Chin for you. I found out that in Japanese Chin means cat like. Go figure he acts like won at times lol. :-o

Your Entrelac Crochet blanket is very pretty! I agree with you that Entrelac Crochet and Tapestry Crochet are vastly different! Great job on your blanket!! Thank you for sharing!!
