I have been trying to find instructions with pictures with no luck. If anyone has what I am looking for please let me know. You really would save my sanitity. I have been trying for so long with no luck. Please send to my e-mail . firstname.lastname@example.org.
I found two double ended crochet hooks at my local thrift store and had a heck of a time finding instructions until I saw it referenced as “crochet on the double”. It seems very similar to the afghan stitch or Tunisian, but from the written instructions found when I searched the web (ie ehow.com), I had a hard time following until I found www.freepatterns.com
If you go to the crochet tab, it will give you more options…or you can get to the “crochet on the double” tab here:
To the right of the page there is a library and there are short videos that show the different steps.
I am sure there are more YouTube videos, but it is hard to find them because even if you put double-ended, or crochet on the double…you end up with a ton of double crochet videos. This one is called double ended Tunisian crochet.
I am currently working on a project that is Tunisian double-ended crochet in the round. This is a fun technique! We do have a video for this technique.
Thanks!!! I had no idea that I could work with these hooks in the round. I am not very successful with my knitting yet and I have been trying to make simple square swatches with these double ended hooks...and to be honest I hadn't decided if the look was really worth the effort, but I can totally see making hats that have a little more stretch. The video is great. Thank you, Toni.
