I've had a go at Tunisian crochet - a cross between knitting and crochet.
I've seen images on the web of these wonderful warm blankets, scarves and hats etc, so after doing a bit of research on how to do the basic stitch I had a try.
I love the woven effect that you get (especially if using variegated wool) and the finished material is thicker than it would be if just crocheting, so warmer. But I don't know if I could tackle anything much larger. It's not as quick as crocheting (but that might be just be a very slow beginner) and I imagine it would also get quite heavy on the needle, but who knows one day I might have a proper go!
The easiest thing for me to do was another neck warmer, as it wouldn't need a special hook.
I added a vintage hand painted button to this one
