My Mom has just taught me this new to me technique called Crochetnit.
She has been sharing this Crochetnit method with the ladies in her craft group, everyone is loving it.
I am starting a reversible lacy Afghan in soft green and cream.
Crochetnit is similar to Tunisian which uses a long hook (looks kinda like a knitting needle, but has the hook on the end) the crochenit hook is double ended (also called cro-hook or crochet on the double). You open the stitches on one "pass", then you close them up on the second "pass".
In the 70s, Mary Middleton introduced "crochenit" which is double-ended
Tunisian using only a size M hook.In the 90s, crochet with the double-ended hook became widely known as
Crochet on the Double when many new patterns were introduced in this technique.
Lacy green side;
Long wooden needles, I have 2 custom needles, Mom had made by a gentleman using dowelling and a dremel.
to make the hooks on each end.
This is a very easy and quick project , simple stitches......... one should say; easy, once shown......
There is a great site Crochenit with video instructions,lots of information and free patterns.
One can find the needles at Hobby Lobby by Susan Bates.
