Product Description

In this book projects are worked using an "in the round" circular technique. This is done on multiple double-ended hooks and is similar to knitting with double pointed needles. This method can combine techniques such as Afghan stitch, crochet on the double and crochenit as well as standard knit and crochet. Flat items such as doilies, hot pads etc.. and tubular items such as gloves and socks can be made without obvious seems. Flat pieces begin in the centre using short double-ended hooks. Stitches are added on each round so pieces lie flat, and then moved to longer hooks when the stitches become crowded. The circular technique uses 3 or 4 10" or 14" double-ended hooks and a double ended swivel hook can be used for larger projects. This book contains 7 patterns most of which use a different technique. These are gloves, fingerless gloves, hat, doily, socks, table mat and hot pad. Please note that the socks are marked as experienced 4 of 4 and the rest are marked as intermediate 3 of 4 so this may not be suitable for a beginner.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for.. 27 Oct 2011
By diy
I expected a book with double ended Tunisian crochet on the round, and it is in a way. But not as I am used to (I only use one hook) and a bit to complicated. Did not think that the items where fun/good lookin either. It is quite a thin book, would not call it a book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what was expected. 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
The patterns in this book require 4 double ended hooks. The short ones shown can cost 10 each and if you use long ones, a bit unwieldy but cheaper, you will still end up paying about 3 each. I was hoping for patterns using one hook and working in the round. Still if this is what you want the book isn't bad. I can't say the patterns were anything special but if you want a new hobby and can afford the hooks I would say go for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Double needle crochet 14 Dec 2010
By Sheesha - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book gives patterns for several useful accessories using a little known and not well documented technique of double ended crochet. The projects go quickly and give a variety of stitch appearances, including that of stockinette knitting without the risk of dropping stitches and unraveling. Anyone who crochets will be interested in learning this technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 31 May 2011
By Jan August - Published on Amazon.com

I have really enjoyed trying the different stitches with my double-ended crochet hooks. I haven't tried them all yet, but I have started one afghan and finished several wash/dish cloths. The instructions and illustrations are very easy to follow. I would recommend this book if you are interested in double-ended crochet.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little more advanced 6 Aug 2013

The book has good descriptions but there is nothing easy of intermediate, it is all more advanced than I had hoped. It wil take some work to do the patterns but I do find it interesting,
2.0 out of 5 stars Just knit it instead 27 Jun 2014
By Bun-Bun Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I incorrectly assumed this booklet would include ways to make reversible items taking advantage of the fact that using two different yarns and flipping the double-ended hook (a.k.a. crohook) after each forward pass, the fabric created will be predominantly the color of one of the yarns on one side, the other on the reverse. But these patterns are all worked on one side only, as though the crohooks were double-pointed needles. You need to buy 3 or 4 crohooks of the same size. Where a variety of economical brands and sizes of sets of doublepointed needles is available at any craft store that sells yarn, crohooks are hard to find, not sold in udplicate-size sets, and more expensive. These patterns are identical to doublepointed needle patterns, just using a different tool. If you wanted to achieve a knit look via right-side-only crochet, a Knook would be simpler.
