Some very good reasons why a knitter should learn. Nope you are not at the wrong site, this is the knitting site. Most of us take time to learn every little thing that we can about knitting except for the C word, Crochet. Now before you run for cover I’m not asking you to convert, I just wanted to point out several good reasons how crochet can actually enhance your knitting projects. One of the best reasons I can think of is to expand your mind but did you know that you can actually use a crochet hook to bind off? Believe it or not it is fast, easy to learn, and very versatile.
Uh Oh the K word, come on say it with me K N I T T I N G , Whew ok we are all still in one piece right ? I’m not trying to convert you but I do want to point out how knitting can put a nice touch to a crochet sweater and other projects that are in your crochet basket or bag. It can be a little awkward at first but the good news is that you won’t have to learn a new way to hold your yarn. Did that help peak your interest just a little? By learning the basic knit and purl stitches, you will be expanding your crochet possibilities and it can be fun learning something new.
Let’s take a break from the lessons and talk a little about taking care of your hands and body when you crochet. If you are anything like me, you have stayed up all night either trying to finish or figure out a project. This can and does lead to sore back, arms, neck, wrist, hand, and blood shot eyes. Here are a few things that may or may not help you to avoid some of these aches and pains associated with crocheting all night. If you know that you will be staying up to crochet for a long period of time, sit in the most comfortable place possible.
