Knooking: Knitting with a Crochet Hook

Knooking: Knitting with a Crochet Hook

Now anyone can knit with the Knook!

What is knooking? Knooking is the new knitting. The "Knook" is a specialized crochet hook with a crochet hook on one end and an eye at the non-hook end.  A cord is threaded through the eye on the non-hook end. The cord holds the stitch while you create a knitted fabric.  When knooking, you are actually making knit and purl stitches.  

Knook is a cross between crochet and knitting.  Knooking can help a crocheter to transition to knitting by making stitches similar to knit stitches.  A knitter can learn more about crocheting and this can help them transition to crochet.
