Surprise Yarn

Posted on Monday, December 13th, 2010 at 1:40 am

I need to know what this is. Knitting, crochet, etc.?

To make a long story short, last Christmas I got a set to make an art thing. You use a hook and yarn. It came in a white box, with green writing. For a while I worked on it, then for about 8 months stopped working on it. Now I want to finish it for her for Christmas (it's going to be a surprise so I can't ask her for help) But now I absolutely cannot remember how to do it! Here are some pictures that might help:

The equipment:

The hook:

The stitches:

Any help would be appreciated! If you can tell me what it is (cross stitching, knitting, crochet, etc.) or how to do it would be so helpful!!! Thanks!

It's latch hooking. It's very simple to do -- too simple, really. But it can be good mindless work while "watching" TV or while chatting with friends.

Take one of the folded lengths of yarn (all pre-cut) with the hook through it. You insert the hook from the front to the back under one of the threads in the mesh, always in the same direction so the yarn ends point the same way in the end. When the hook is through, push the hook far enough forward so that little latch opens all the way (most important) and you catch the tail which are on the other side of the hole. Pull the tails through the first loop you made (It takes longer to explain than to do!!). You are making larkshead knots really.

Push through, catch end, pull through. You can do these very quickly, when you have all your yarn prepared. You have a painted mesh, so just follow that, and you will be fine. It's not hard.
