Take your yarncrafting skills and bring them together! In this episode, Liz and Zontee share some patterns that use both knit and crochet in one garment, as well as the reasons that knitters can benefit from learning some crochet and vice versa. Discover how just a few skills in a different yarncraft can expand your abilities!
We also talk to author Monette Satterfield, whose book Knit & Crochet Combined: Best of Both Worlds and website are good resources for putting these two crafts together. Another book we talk about is Knitting Loves Crochet by Candi Jensen.
