I love double-ended crochet, and it’s very related to Tunisian crochet, so it seemed like a great technique for Week 2 of the New Year, New Skill crochet-a-long! This week features three different double-ended crochet patterns! (If you’re just hearing about the CAL, you can find more details and a regularly updated schedule here.)

Week 2: Double-Ended Crochet
Double-ended crochet goes by many names. You may have heard it referred to as double-ended Tunisian crochet, crochet on the double, crochenit, or even other names. You need a specialized double-ended crochet hook to make these projects. These days, double-ended hooks are available in a variety of lengths and materials. I prefer to make my own double-ended hooks using my Denise2Go Crochet for a Cure 2-Hook Set, which can also be configured as Tunisian hooks or standard crochet hooks.
