Cro-Hook Class

Image

I am in the process of revising my classes and have decided to share a little about the classes that I teach. I know most of you live too far away to really attend unfortunately, but I was asked to post the classes for those that live near by. This week I thought I would share about one of the two classes I taught yesterday – the Cro-Hook class.

Many of you may not know but this particular stitch is also called cro-hooking, reversible crochet, crochenit, double ended hook, crochet on the double, double hooking and cro-knitting. The reason? Some of these are copyrighted with certain companies. For this reason I decide to go with the name of the hook, Cro-hook. No matter what you call you will still get the same amazing results.

This style of crocheting works with either a double ended hook (10″ or 14″ ranging in sizes   C – P) or a circular double ended hook (22″ ranging in sizes G – J and 40″ ranging in sizes G – J). What I love about this stitch is that it produces a soft, knit like fabric and is very similar to Tunisian crocheting. The difference is it uses two or more skeins of yarn, and the best part of all, is the end which results in a reversible crochet piece with each side being unique.

I really like using this stitch for afghans, scarves and vests but it can be used for lots of other projects. It is like crocheting two projects at the same time instead of one because each side is different.

In my class we make a dish cloth. (picture above) It is a one day class that usually takes 3 hours.

Share if it this is a stitch you have tried. As always I would love to hear about how you like working with the cro-hook.

Until next time keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
