  2. I have never tried Tunisian crochet but would love to. I seem to be stuck with regular crochet since most of the work I do is baby blankets with intricate edgings. I was not sure if Tunisian crochet could be used for that. After watching your video about the Knook, maybe I could combine the Tunisian crochet, regular crochet and knitting and create some interesting combinations. I can't find The Knook at my Walmart in Addison, IL.

  3. I really am enjoying Tunisian Crochet. I am new to all of this but find it not only creative but extremely relaxing. This has become my new stress reliever. Can't wait for your new book Kim.....

  4. I bought Kim Guzman's book and am a member of her online group and highly recomment giving Tunisian Crochet a try! You'll enjoy it, especially if you already crochet.

  5. I haven't been able to find the Knook at my Walmart in Sanford, Maine, either. I'm anxious to try it. I've been crocheting for 40+ years but have never been able to knit.

  6. None of my local Walmarts have the knook nor is it on the Walmart website. It is so frustrating to read all the blogs about this new technique with out giving it a try. It is like being teased. Can I have a tantrum now!

  8. What do you do when you have to many stitches to fit onto the crochet(knook) needle

  10. Slwwlw: According to our experts, if you have cast on too many stitches to be able to work with the 36” cord that was provided, you need to to substitute a longer cord. We found that we could only cast on enough stitches to fit on less than 18” (or less than half of the cord) for you can’t turn and work across in rows without the stitches falling off the end of the cord (disaster).

    Does that help?

  11. Slwwlw: Another of our experts says that it’s ok for them to flow onto the cord.

  12. Merrilee, another alternative would be to work with 2 cords. Drop one cord when it starts getting too full and put the new cord into action about mid-way through the project.
