Beginner Tunisian Crochet Triangle Scarf
One of my favorite parts of crochet design is making a fairly simple technique look refined and complex. Entrelac And Key uses crochet entrelac, a simple method of crocheting squares onto each other to create a fabric.
In this case, Entrelac And Key begins with 1 square at the very tip of the shawl, then rows of squares are added, increasing by 1 each time. This makes the shawl easy to customize, as you can stop crocheting at your preferred size.
The absolute best part about this Tunisian crochet triangle scarf is that you don’t even need a Tunisian crochet hook to make it! Since the squares are made one at a time, you’ll never have more than 8 loops on your hook. That means you can use a traditional crochet hook like THESE to make your Entrelac And Key shawl.
