Entrelac Cubes

Posted by 2ton Inspired on January 14, 2009

For a long time I looked for seamless cube patterns to make for babies but didn’t find any good ones. Finally I saw these on Ravelry while browsing the favorite patterns section. I had never done entrelac before but the pattern is super detailed and walks you through the whole process.


The first cube took maybe 6 hours, but once I finished that the next ones took half the time. I went up a few needle sizes because of the yarn I used.

My 2.5 year old nephew loves to play with them when he comes over. It’s one of the first thing he asks for after playing Mario Kart. 🙂 They’re great for him because they don’t hurt when he misses catching them (which is often!)

Pattern: Simple Entrelac Cubes (Ravelry link)

Needle: 10.5

Yarn: random bits of Caron, Sugar and Cream and Red Heart (I great stash buster!)
