Starburst Entrelac Afghan

Issue: 32, August 2012


Starburst Entrelac Afghan by Meghan Granholm
Find the pattern in issue 32 of Inside Crochet magazine.

Even though she knits, Megan prefers to test her creativity by applying knitting techniques such as entrelac in crochet. Tunisian crochet, being similar to both crafts, is an easy way to experiment with knitting techniques using a hook. Inspired by a starburst quilt, this octagonal afghan looks great hanging over a couch or crib rail.
