Knooking is the new method of knitting, and you will be hooked once you give it a try. The Knook is a specialized crochet hook that creates a true knitted fabric. The attached cord completely prevents dropped stitches, which is sometimes a problem with regular two-needle knitting. “Learn to Knook” is a thorough guidebook that has everything you need to know about using the Knook tool. This comprehensive instruction and pattern book includes three great projects to get you started with the Knook technique. Choose from the ribbed scarf, cabled hand mitts, and slouchy beanie patterns included in the book to get started using a crochet hook to create a knit fabric.
Enjoy learning the basic technique from the step-by-step photos and clear instructions, which are written for both right-hand and left-hand stitching. Once you master the basic crochet technique, you'll learn how to do decreases and increases, finish seams, change colors, make cables, knit in the round, and more. These are all standard stitches, but you can do them on the easy to use Knook crochet hook. After making the three easy projects included in the “Learn to Knook” book (a ribbed scarf, cabled hand mitts, and a toddler's slouchy beanie), you'll know why yarn lovers everywhere are saying the Knook makes knitting fun. Move on to other Knook patterns, or create your own using regular knit or crochet patterns. The options are endless with this functional tool. Suddenly, you will be a crochet knitter, and no one will be able to tell the difference.
