    “a washcloth can be both crappy AND useful all at the same time.”

    Plus quick and simple. Ingenious! I love your style !!

    Thanks you so much for bringing this to us! I have been trying to figure out how I could make knit and purl stitches using a crochet hook without using the tuscanian method. This is perfect! On my way to join your Ravelry group :)

    I just found this and I love it. Knitting has been hurting my arm, and crochet is really my first love anyway. I made the Knooking 102 cloth, and I am hooked! (Yes, pun intended!) I joined the Ravelry group as well! I had to create my own hook, I just taped a piece of cording to the bottom of a hook I had, and it worked great. I will be trying to get some “real” hooks, however. (Can you have enough?) I am now trying another washcloth design, the basic one with the yarn overs. Thanks for bringing this information to us!

    Wow! I’ve been wanting to knit for a long time…I can knit & purl but it’s always been slow going for me so I just stuck to crochet–I learned how to do tunisian crochet but this…waayy closer to knitting. Thanks so much for this! I guess I’ll be following Michelle’s strategy until I get one of those hooks!

    Hi Photogenic,

    I lead our crochet club at Debbie Macombers A Good Yarn Shop in Port Orchard, WA.

    The ladies (no men yet – but they are free to join) would like to learn knooking and I am setting up a class.

    Would it be ok to make copies of your two washcloth patterns to use in the class.

    Thank you in Advance.

    I would love to learn knooking but if I cannot download your instructions for this simple washcloth, I cannot properly learn and I can’t download unless I upload something I don’t know how to do..(?????). You might want to think about giving a newcomer a little wiggle room.

      I’m sorry you are having difficulty downloading the patterns. If you look carefully at the top of the box surrounding the pattern you should see three options: Download, Print and Fullscreen. Have you tried clicking on them to save the patterns?

    Knooking – washcloths are a good way to learn – and with enough of these sewn together will make a nice afghan.

    Now all I have to do is find a knooking needle. Seems to me that knooking is like knitting with 1 needle (being a crochet hook instead) with the cord being the other needle.

    found a knooking kit at walmart! Yay!

    I recently saw a knook kit at Walmart, and then looked it up on the internet. It seems an interesting concept – the speed of crochet with the look of knitting. I just wish the developer had taken it to the next level – circular needles with a regular knitting needle at one end and a crochet hook at the other. It would be like easy continental knitting! No trying to spear your stitches on a floppy edge, no having to pull the cord along. Does anyone know of a device like this? That type of knook I would buy!

    I recently learned to crochet. I love it. I tried knitting first but felt stupid when I could not even cast on. I seem to love the knit look though, and also have a habit of crocheting very tight. Would the knook be alright for someone who can not master the art of knitting?

      I also like the fact that I can crochet a beanie from start to finish in about 3 hours. Is this just as quick?

    Always wanted to try this knooking

    I just found a knocking kit @Hobby Lobby last wk! I’m sooooo hooked! LOL! Been a long time crocheter, but recently have wanted to use novelty yarns for those so cute skinny scarves. BUT crocheting & novelty yarns dont work too well. So since Friday, & with Easter holiday— I made a rather long scruffy looking first attempt scarf, a face cloth, and I’m not sure, maybe another face cloth. could never juggle 2 needles, manage the yarn without dropping stitches. The knook still allows me to “hook” the yarn! SO EXCITED!!

    The best thing about this, is that crochet hooks are allow on airplanes, and knitting needles aren’t? I travel a lot, and wanted to try some knitting patterns. Crocheting helps pass the otherwise useless time in the airport/airplane. (and you don’t have to turn it off during take-off and landing!

    Where can you buy more of the cord used in knooking. My cord seems to fray.
