A Knook Review

What is a knook?  You may be asking.  It’s basically a crochet hook with a hole in the end for a thread to run through.  It’s called a ‘knook’ because you can knit with a crochet hook.  I finally picked it up this weekend, and tried making a hat.  After two hours, this is how far I got:

You actually are making knit and purl stitches.  And I must say, it is kind of neat having the string attached at the end.  I was following a k2 p1 pattern, and I realized that about 20 stitches ago, I added a purl stitch.  With knitting needles, you have to carefully pick up your stitches again, however, with this, you just rip them out, and they stay on the cord.  Sweet!

I’m making one of the hats from this book:

Hopefully, I finish it within the week, and will be able to show you some pictures of it…
