How to KNIT Crochet Stitches

Years ago when I hosted DIY Network’s Knitty Gritty, designer Lily Chin came on as a guest to show how to knit a particular stitch to look like crochet. Since my community tends to be split amongst knitters and crocheters — both sides often wanting to create similar versions of a project in their chosen craft  — I’m always mindful of ways for everyone to feel included, and this is just one way for that to be so. Unfortunately, however, I’ve searched high and low for reference (that episode was shot before the existence of blogs) of Lily’smethod, but without success. Never one to be deterred though, this morning I set off to experiment and discover what may be my own method for how to knit crochet stitches. The resulting findings are the topic of this week’s episode of Ask Me Monday (Facebook Live). Watch the video for how to work what I’m calling: knit single crochet, knit double crochet, and knit triple crochet. Once you get the gist, then grab your needles, use the instructions below and take this knitting technique out for a spin!

    I forgot to ask before, but this post reminded me! You referenced the knitty gritty show and wondered if it is possible to buy those old shows on dvd? I loved the show and even put some in vhs(that is a long time ago). I have never see it offered on dvd.Is it possible to buy?!Thanks! Helen

    Love the blanket but my question is about beading. In the 60’s a dear friend showed me how to crochet small round beads ( like pereals) into beautiful jewelry . I have looked an looked to try an find the pattern once again. You could string them in such away that the pattern would be flowers leaves. etc. Is there anyway you could help me or point me in the right direction. I would so appericate it. My great-granddaughter happened to find one I made in storage an wants to know an different kinds.
