Skill level: Intermediate.

Materials and gauge: Tunisian crochet entrelac may be worked with any yarn and appropriate hook size. Generally, best results are obtained with any type of Tunisian crochet when it's worked with a larger hook than you would use for traditional crochet with a particular yarn. The projects in this pattern were made with worsted-weight cotton yarn and size K Tunisian hook.

Tunisian crochet is normally worked with a long, straight Tunisian hook; however, since Tunisian entrelac is worked with only a few crochet stitches on the hook at a time, regular crochet hooks may be used. The technique is Tunisian-but the hook need not necessarily be a Tunisian hook.
