Knitting vs. Crochet: Two Races to Decide the Fates of Hook & Needle

Race #1

This first race uses the same yarn, but different sized hook & needle.

Who will win?


Race #2

This race used the same yarn, same hook/needle size and made a cowl using the same number of stitches.


Monika’s Cowl

This cozy cowl was designed for my photographer years ago. She still wears this cowl each winter and I’ve FINALLY written it up for everyone to enjoy!
