Although the currently popular name is "Knooking" - KNITTING with a Crochet Hook has been practiced for a long time. Given its current popularity and that it does seem to draw folks who crochet but would like to try knitting, Amy suggested I post a message here to see if there was sufficient interest. We also discussed where it might be placed - Since it is NOT Crochet, rather really is knitting, So, is this a topic you think needs it own section, Knit with Crochet Hook(s) And where would you place it? If I ruled the universe, and clearly I do not, it would be part of the special Knitting Interest section, but feel free to disagree. Enjoy The Making Wheat
Amy posted a topic in Seeking Pattern TestersPattern Information Pattern Description: A medium-width garter stitch scarf with two ribbons of ruffle yarn spiraling upward across front and back of scarf. Pattern Style: written Pattern Photo (optional): Skill Level: Advanced beginner. I would like a few testers with basic knooking or Tunisian experience and a few without. Yarn/Material/Tools Required: Tester will provide own materials and keep finished project. No specific yarns are required, just general types as described below. One or two skeins of worsted weight yarn One skein of ladder yarn Size H or I interchangeable crochet hook Suggested Material Sources: Knitter’s Pride interchangeable hook AND interchangeable cable set OR Whole set of interchangeable hooks (if you want a whole set of hooks) Rozetti Tundra yarn Euro Tinseltown yarn Katia Rizos yarn Knitting Fever Ripple yarn Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash (not sure if you’ll need 1 or 2 skeins) Caron Simply Soft (one skein) Sample of Ladder Yarn Needed: You can buy yarn from wherever you choose, and it doesn't have to be the brands listed. It just needs to be a basic worsted weight and a ladder yarn of this type. I do suggest that you select a worsted weight yarn that is very close to the color used in the ladder part of the yarn. In my sample scarf photo, the ladder yarn has black thread used to make the boxes of the ladder part. If you look closely at the large photo, you'll see that you can notice that black being carried through the garter-stitch only portion of the scarf. You probably don't want that effect in a scarf you actually complete. Tester Information Number of Testers Needed: 4-6 Approximate Time Required to Complete Project: unknown; less than 10 hours, I think? Deadline: mid-January Tester Experience: 2-3 with no previous knooking experience; 2-3 with basic knooking experience Tester Responsibilities: Work pattern exactly as written. As soon as something is unclear, stop work, and contact me with your comment or question. After we work together to resolve your problem, continue on as above. Email me pictures of your finished scarf. If you have really good pictures, I may ask to use them in pattern. (You would be additionally compensated for this.) If you have a really striking finished item (use of yarn and color), I may ask you to send it to me for a photo shoot so I could include pictures of it in the pattern. (I'll pay all shipping costs. Credit would be given in pattern for any photos or finished item used. Add finished item to your projects at Ravelry AFTER the finished pattern has been released. Any Special Software Requirements: None. All comments can be sent through email or PM. Compensation Free copy of final pattern. Credit in pattern if your photos or finished item are used.
I just got a set of knook hooks from eBay and as soon as i finish my current tests and commitments, I will try it. I think there are others who want to try this technique. Earlier this year I taught myself the basics of crohooking and made a couple of pieces. I love it, as I am generally monochromatic, and this pushed me to combine colors.
