Learning How to Knook
No, it's not the e-reader from Barnes & Noble. It's a special crochet hook with a knitting needle on the other end. For me it's the combination of two of my favorite hobbies, knitting & crocheting, into one awesome craft! With a little help from a kit I got at JoAnn's and watching a few YouTube videos I have gotten the hang of how to knook.
Pictures are always helpful so here are a few of my new adventure:
This is the Instagram picture before I even opened the kit
Figuring out the knit stitch
Figuring out the purl stitch and making stockinette
Starting my first project: spa cloth from the booklet that comes with the kit
Super excited to be using scented cotton yarn! (Sorry it's sideways)
Finished spa cloth!! (Again, sorry it's sideways) Working on more to add to my Etsy shop. :)
So far I'm enjoying this combination of knitting and crochet. It's also a great conversation starter since hardly anyone knows what it is! My next knook project is a toddler hat for a friend's 12 month old. What knitting or crochet projects are you working on?
