kerravonsen: Crafty: a medly of beads (craft)
I tried doing some knooking yesterday, using a bamboo Tunisian crochet hook with an extension made of a plastic tube attached to the end of the hook (one of a set of them which I bought on E-Bay - like this). I was finding it quite difficult, and now I have figured out why. It was the plastic tube. It was too thick, and thus getting in the way.

See, an "official" Knook hook is a crochet hook with a hole drilled at the end, and a cord which you thread through the hole. This works because the cord is small enough not to get in the way. Likewise, there are extended Tunisian crochet hooks which work because the extension part is coated wire which is about 1mm thick, not a plastic tube which is 4mm thick.

So it isn't that I can't do knooking, it is that I was using the wrong tool for the job. Good to know (and now I need to get more appropriate hooks...)
