I find one video about is on Yu Tube, it is like knitting with a modified crochet hook. I want to have a try, because crocheting is quicker than knitting and I like crocheting more.

This is also called tunisian crochet it has been around for awhile, and is getting updated, like the loom knitting. It has a few unique stitches that are very cool! You can try searching on tunisian crochet as well as knocking.

Lisa, I got a beginning Knook kit and tried it I tis NOT Tunisian crochet. It is true kittin with a crochet hoot. I have crocheted for longer than I have knit and Tunisian stitch is very different from knooking.

Juli, i will take another look at this - when I looked at the two, I thought they were the same or very similar. Can you share with us what some of the differences are?

Lisa, for starters, in knooking, you don't clear the stitches off the hook. The stitches are all working stitches as in knitting. To work stitches you begin with a chain as in crochet, however, you work into the front loop of the chain and keep the stitches on the hook. Then you slide them onto the cable attached to the hook, turn the work without removing the stitches from the cable, and work a twisted knit stitch, using the hook instead of a knitting needle.

oh, wow! I think I understand what you are saying. They are very different things. Whenever I have looked a tunisian crocheted items, they appeared to me to be knitted. Thank you for clarifying this!

Actually the knooking is not tunisian crochet. It is actually knitting with a hook, quite different then tunisian. I think that it is actually easier to knit with needles and then crochet the parts you want then it is to knook. Tunisian is totally different and creates a very different product. Knooking actually creates knitted stitches where tunisian is a thicker mat like when you use what is called the tunisian knit stitch.
