5.0 out of 5 stars arthritic thumb no more!
Knitting makes my arthritic thumb hurt. I did miss it though as crochet isn't as neat and even for some projects. This could well be the answer. AND there are left-handed instructions for me. I'm wondering if one can use ordinary knitting patterns when more confident with it. Has anyone tried?

3.0 out of 5 stars could be easier
Quite interesting but instructions could be easier to follow. I'll persevere and hope to succeed as there are some lovely patterns available.

Either its me but i am struggling .Could do with more instructions . I appreciate they want to save paper but I think the right handed and left handed instructions should be separate as I seem to get confused at which picture I should be looking at.

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money for experienced knitters and crocheters, 8 Jun 2012

Neat little gadget for someone new to knitting or crocheting. However, can't see the point if you already know how to knit and crochet. Doesn't save any time to normal crocheting and can be very fiddly against normal knitting techniques. Finished items look just the same as knitting. So what's new? If you are already experienced in knitting and crochet, don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for non knitters, 5 Mar 2013

I can both knit and crochet and have done for many years. Thought I would try the knook but will stick with my knitting and crochet. I found it fiddly and slow compared to knitting and crochet. However having said that it would probably be a very good start for someone who can perhaps crochet a little and not knit. And also for travelling as I'm sure airlines would allow this wooden stick on a plane!

3.0 out of 5 stars Is OK but only just, 16 April 2012

This review is from: The Knook Beginner Set Medium Weight Yarn [With 3 Knooks, 3 Long Cords and Booklet] (Now You Can Knit with a Crochet Hook!) (Paperback)
It's OK and does lookm likem knitting but is quite fiddly and the stitches easily come off the cord as well as the cord slipping out of the hole in the end of the hook. the crochet hooks are not like my usual ones and are difficult to use for crochet as the hook has an odd sharp angle. Not sure I'll use this set much but will use the technique in another way with my normal hooks.

I found this facinating,I can knit and crochet ,but this is a bit of a mix of the two.
it is an inexpensive book ,and well worth the purchase ,even if you would not wish to use it all the time ,it is a fun thing to learn and perhaps teach a young person
