Sweet little blankets for babies are so much fun to make with the Knook and medium weight yarn. The Knook is a specialized crochet hook that creates true knitted fabric, while the attached cord completely prevents dropped stitches! It's great for beginners or anyone who would like to learn to knit the easy way. Clear instructions on the basic technique are provided for both right-hand and left-hand stitching, while photos illustrate each step.
