Tunisian crochet – Entrelac baby blanket

Entrelace Babydecke auf dem Rand des Korbes - Entrelace baby blanket on the edge of the basket

This is my long-time-project at the moment. I never ever crocheted a blanket before – hence I started with a baby blanket (it’s smaller!). But nevertheless this entrelac baby blanket takes time.

The entrelac baby blanket is made with a normal crochet needle, but it’s crocheted with a simple tunisian crochet stitch, one square after another. Every row contains about 25 small squares and I crochet about two to five a day. That’s not much, but it’s the way I like to progress with this crochet project. I crochet it during watching tv or while I listen to an audiobook. Soon I get bored and I take another current crochet project on my hook (e.g. a kindle case).

The yarn used is cotton with a lot of color changes in itself. I buyed it while it was on sale, that is why the blanked will be finished when I have no more. I think I’ll buy a white or linen colored cotton yarn to create a border, but that’s still a long way to go.

The pattern of the blanked can be found in The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet by Margaret Hubert. It’s explained quite good, and the written instructions are combined with a clear crochet chart.

What’s your opinion? Do you crochet blankets fast or do you take it slow. I would be very happy to hear about your experiences!

  1. This is a wonderful blanket! Although I’ve heard about Entrelac before, I’ve never tried it myself, but now I think I should really give it a try!
    Oh, and I prefer the same way of working as you do: crocheting while watching TV, and picking up another project when I’m bored. On some nights, I’m working on five different projects in a row and never get bored! 🙂

  2. Klasse.

  3. meine Projekte dauern immer eeeewig, egal was es ist. Ich brauche ewig u komm auch selten zum Häkeln, aber grundsätzlich versuche ich ein Projekt fertig zu machen, bevor ich das nächste beginne.
