Seeking help.......

budsterMarch 17, 2007

I know we have had this discussion before but I can't find it on any of the postings.....what is the needle and yarn work called that is done on the large single knitting needle with a crochet hook on the end? I thought it was something like cro-knit ...... does anyone have any sites where it is explained on how to use the needle with a pattern or two? I'm seeking the information for a senior who was given a couple needles and we are trying to figure out just what to do with them. Thank you. Budster

If it has a crochet hook on each end it is the Cro-hook or sometimes called Crochetnit.

Budster, try AnniesAttic.com. Some call it Tunisian crochet. I have done it, but can't remember how I did it!
I know Annies still has patterns for it, as I get thier news letters by eamil and have seen some there.

I think you use it to make the afghan stitch. It has another name too, but I forget it. It is one of those projects that I will try one of these blue moons.

I'm attempting to make an afghan using the afghan stitch, but the ends are curling up really badly! any of you good folks out there know any ways to un-curl them?

It is the nature of the beast. The only thing I am aware of is to make an edging of several rows of some type. And blocking will help, but it really can't be avoided with the afghan stitch.
