I have 2 Questions...

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.

RE: I have 2 Questions...

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.
