Hello Sandi,

I haven't seen this dishcloth pattern before but am a fan of the little House in the Suburbs site. I find it's such a small world here on the Net at times with crafters. Thanks for sharing this pattern and I look forward to trying the pattern. (((Hugs))) to you! :hug

Okay... I'll share tonight.

Lets see how many of you see this post yet tonight... heheheheheeee

So... I dont know how many of you have heard or seen hook knitting... or as they call it on Raverly... 'knooking' but....... I had seen it and found it to be interesting ... but didnt really give it much thought because I know how to knit and crochet. Well......... as we have been sharing dishcloths... some of you are a bit bummed about not knowing how to knit... so I looked deeper into this hook knitting ... or knooking. I found that you actually can knit with your crochet hook.

This is the project I was working on yesterday.

YES... its really knitted with my crochet hook ..... look like a familar pattern Sue?

Well... this lead me to wanting to be able to have an extention tool to be able to alter my favorite hook to be able to knit.

Off to the hardware store I went ... and my trip was a success.

post-18634-135897517136_thumb.jpg

I can now alter my favorite hook temporarily to knit... then remove the extention and back to my crocheting! :yay

I'm working on a square now using Red Heart Super Saver. I'm going to make several in this Cornmeal color and several in a Burgandy color... sew them together to create a school color blanket with a Cougar 'Paw' on half the squares. :hook

Now... if anyone wants to learn... I will be happy to help!!!!

We can have a Mini CAL here in this thread with making a dishcloth using the hook knitting or knooking method!

That is WAY cool!!! I've really been wanting to try that knooking thing. Looks pretty cool!!! Is knooking a dishcloth faster than knitting a dishcloth?

 

Great job!!!

Thanks hon!

you know.... I find knitting to be faster than 'knooking' but ....... this is a fun technique... and is a great way for crocheters that dont knit to be able to create knitted items.

Tammy, have I told you lately I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :hug

 

Must know how, must know how!!! :clap

 

Now as for the hook, they do make one like what you have there. Check it out here. But I would love instructions on how you made yours!

 

Daytona, give Momma LOTS of kisses!!! :manyheart

After more research into the knooking hook I found that the hook I put a link to wouldn't work since the cord needs to be detachable (at least that's what the instruction blog for knooking said). So Tammy, we need to know how you made your's! PLEASE?

I was wandering around the house figuring out what supplies I needed for this knooking hook and I had the tubing, some electrical connectors and nylon string! Boy was I right on! The only thing I was missing was the hook! :lol I only have Clover soft touch or hooks WAY too big for doing this. You'd think the hook was the 1 thing I would have had! :rofl

Here are 3 dishcloths I made early this morning. Left to right: The first is Julee Reeve's Blue Ribbon Round Ripple Dishcloth, available for sale on ravelry and etsy. The solid color is a free pattern on Lily's Sugar 'n Cream site called Lily's Sugar 'N Cream Naturals Granny Dishcloth. The last one is also a free pattern on Mary Maxim's site #3621P Striped Dishcloth. The first and last were to be crocheted with "stripes" cotton but since I had none, I improvised with 2 colors. Pretty & useful!

Gosh darn.... all you need is an I hook and you'd be set!

now I do use an emery board to file the tubing end that is on the hook.. to help the stitches slip off the hook onto the cording easier.

I love the RR dishcloths. Don't you find it cool but just changing the colors a bit, you end up with such beautiful color schemes? Love all your cloths! :cheer

Beautiful dishcloths.

 

I have an I hook, but none of the other stuff for making a knooking hook. Guess I'll have to go shopping one of these days.

DebraKay, I like your cloths. That Julee's RR is one of my favorites to do.

 

I crocheted the one Titus2Woman posted, last night. The Quick Dry Dishcloth. Just need to take a picture later today...
