The hook is a wooden or bamboo hook I purchased from a thrift store I believe it's an M or 9mm hook.

I used a little over two 7 oz skeins of (4) medium worsted weight yarn for a lap blanket.

I do not know how much it will take for something larger.

I learned the technique from this blog which also has suggestions for the number of squares to start with for certain sized blankets.http://mylifeinknots.blogspot.com/200...


Part one of the series. Entrelac Crochet Blanket. This will be a crochet-along. Follow the link in the annotations to the next video.

The formula to figure out how many chains to make is to
Make 10 chains for each beginning square
add 1 chain for each square (for the chain that joins the squares together. )
Minus 1 chain. (There is one less join than there is squares. )

Example: 3 starting squares: 3 x 10= 30. 30 +3 =33. 33-1=32. so chain 32 for a center of 3 squares.

"Can you make bigger squares?" has been asked several times, so here is the answer to that question:

"...you could make it twice the size and do 21 chains for each square. Don't forget to add the chains that go between the squares. ...Bigger squares would mean you could cross-stitch onto them too! (corrected this 6/6/13)
