Last week, my niece Jessica wanted to crochet a scarf for her boyfriend’s mother. She went to her stash and found the perfect yarn, but did not have a large enough hook to accommodate the gauge of the yarn. How did she handle such a dilemma? She looked on YouTube to learn how to hand knit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oT3gdc44Lp8
I am amazed at her instant success. Usually, it takes a crocheter practice getting comfortable using two needles after developing muscle memory holding a hook.
Jessica has some tips of her own before embarking on hand knitting: Use the restroom, have a cigarette and turn off your cell phone because you won’t be able to answer.
Fantastic job Jessica!
