Tunisian Crochet Entrelac Headband



This is made in the style of Entrelac, where one long chain is made and then worked back in sections to form the 'sideways' blocks. Some Rosettes are added to the top couple of blocks to add some fun to it. These may be difficult to get used to making with the Tunisian but with a little practice go fairly easily.
