I was given 1 skein of some yummy yarn Bernat Bamboo Natural Blends, color: water (light soft blue) it is a bulky weight. Having only 63yds (57m) I had no clue what to make with it but knew I wanted something special as it is sooooo soft. One of my Aunt's friends just found out she has cancer and will be starting chemo in a few weeks. I instantly thought of this yarn for a chemo hat for this woman. I knew there wasn't enough yarn to crochet a hat, there is just enough to do a simple knit hat. Well now this yarn has that boucle (sp) texture to it, plus the soft slipperiness of it that I'm not comfortable with knitting loom or knitting needles. Out came the knook hook. Using this pattern Knooked Hat Crown Down I can at least make the hat this way. I have discovered though I can knook, and know enough of it to help others get started I don't like it. Have any of you tried knooking? If so what are your thoughts?
