I have 2 Questions...

gracie01December 4, 2008

I just received Annie's Attic catalog. They have a book on "Slip Stitch Crochet". I cannot find a tutorial anywhere on this. I know how to crochet, but have never done a project in this method. Has anyone tried this?

Two, they also have a book on "Crochet-knit". How difficult is this? I don't know how to knit.

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light on these.

Slip stitch is a particular crochet stitch. It is somewhat like a single crochet, but you do not make a second loop. So you put the hook through the stitch, make a loop and pull it through that stitch and the loop on your hook. It is a shortened version of a single crochet somewhat like a half double crochet is a shortened version of a double crochet.

I have no experience with crochet-knit. But I do crochet and I do knit.

Thank you, I know what a slip stitch is, but have you ever made an entire project with one? That is my question.

mamalo3, thank you for your offer. It looks like it would be very time consuming, but the finished results look very nice. Have you made anything from that book yet?
