crochet that looks like knitting

11 posts in this topic

I once learned a crochet stitch that looked like knit. Of course now I cant remember how to do it and I cant find instructions on how to do it. Can anyone help me?

Perhaps tunisian stitch? It produces a thinner more drapey type of crochet work. It's worked by putting a lot of stitches onto the hook and then working them back off.

There's also slip stitch. You just slip stitch into the back loop all the time and it looks just like knitting only firmer. Zaraliz

[FONT=Comic Sans MS][COLOR=green]I've crocheted sweaters for my boys that look just like knit and the pattern called for crocheting around the posts (either on the front side or back side) with mostly dc stitches. I fooled most of the women at the office went I took it into work - they all thought that I had knitted it. :hook [/COLOR][/FONT]

Ana that is exactly how my sweater pattern instructions were and I was amazed at how much like knitting it looked.

Your scarf looks pretty.
