Crocheting in Tunisian can be one of the most relaxing methods except when you want to make an afghan and have to fit all those loops on your hook. Step in Entrelac where you only have to have a hook long enough for each block and can build the afghan one block at a time. This afghan uses that simple technique coupled with a bit of colorplay to results that mimic weaving in half the time.
