In this episode of B.Hooked TV you’ll see how to transition from your crochet hook to a knitting needle and knitting needle to a crochet hook – in the same project!
Crocheting and knitting in the same project is a great way to shake up your routine.
It’s also a great way to incorporate the best of both worlds into a single project. Not a lot of people are doing it, so it’s a great way to create something unique. It’s not without its quirks, however. Because the two crafts are quite different, these differences need to be addressed when you’re planning your project.
- Crochet stitches are often thicker than knit stitches which may effect the drape of the project.
- Crochet stitches typically use more yarn than knitting so you’ll need to factor that in when buying yarn.
Making a swatch first is a great way to see how the stitches work together and what drape is created. We think it’s totally worth the extra effort!
