I started crocheting as a teenager. At the same time, I
tried my hands at knitting, but two or four needles were too confusing for me. Years
later I again picked up a set of knitting needles. I had fallen in love with
several projects that beautifully paired the solid textured stitches of
knitting with the elegance of crochet lace.
This love of patterns that marry knitting and crochet is what
led Knitting Daily Editor Kathleen
Cubley and I to create this free eBook. As Kathleen says, "Knitting loves
crochet. . . . Knitting and crochet are sisters, really, who share the same
history and tradition in the world of needle work." We hope you will enjoy
the beauty of both crafts in these exquisite patterns.
