Marilyn,

That is a cool looking pattern. It would go much faster if a bigger yarn was used to make it, though.


Great idea!  I think it would look terrific in a thicker yarn.

When I did a search, I didn't find as much as I had hoped. Here's one photo of the hook.

Actually, thanks...this works for me!  I could use whatever afghan hooks I have left for the thicker yarns and I have an interchangeable set of the steel numbered crochet hooks for thin cottons and such.

Come to think of it, I think the hook was on clearance sale when I bought it. I guess it was one of those crafts that didn't go over very well.


Argh, isn't that always the way?  I hate seeing things go away like that.  Sad

Melanie,

I know what you mean. But sometimes crafts come back again, but a little different. Kinda like the huck weaving done on huck toweling. It may not have gone completely away, but it was 'rejuvenated' and now you see it done on Monk's cloth.  I think I remember seeing patterns for doing it on crocheted afghan stitch afghans.  Somebody could bring back cro-tatting again.  And we'll already know how to do it, right?  Wink

LOL, actually, you're absolutely correct!  Everything that goes away eventually comes back again.  Remember the Friendly Plastic?  For years, I looked but couldn't find it again...then it came back.

I've never thought of doing the huck weaving on crocheted afghan stitch afghans...that's certainly a nice thought!

I'd love to see them bring back cro-tatting.  This is why I like Tunisian stockinette...it looks like real knitting, as cro-tatting looks like real tatting.  Sometimes when you want to do something a certain way, it's better to do it in a different way - that just looks like it.  Wink
