hello! i am so happy to announce that i have a fun new workshop debuting today over on Creativebug. it’s called Crochet Techniques for Knitters, and it’s packed with simple and useful ways that a crochet hook can become a valued addition to your knitting toolkit (if it isn’t already)!
knitters tell me all the time “i saw this cute pattern on Ravelry but then i saw that it had a crochet edging so i passed it by” and this, my pals, is a travesty. i’m a firm believer that, though we may lean toward one or the other, every knitter should crochet, and every crocheter should knit.
following are some of the ways i’ll show you that the hook can help your knitting:
i think the timing couldn’t be more perfect. i mean, last week a crochet sweater pattern appeared on Knitty. (whaaaaat?!? i know! i never thought i’d live to see this historic day). and every day i see more beautiful crochet patterns by new designers. you can see some hot-on-the-hook crochet action right now if you check the #crochetsummer2015 hashtag on Instagram.
i’ve started a Crochet for Knitters pinboard to collect lovely patterns that utilize both hook and needle. please let me know if you come across any that i can add!
