Weird Knitting Trick

I discovered something bizzare the other day. I was unraveling another failed attempt at a Tunisian crochet baby sock, when the whole thing suddenly turned into knit stockinette stitch.

It turns out when you pull one of the two strings necessary for Tunisian crochet in the round, it leaves you with a knitted cylinder!

Here’s what mean. Behold the sacrificial Tunisian crochet cylinder.

You pull the second strand, the one that’s been drawn through two loops over and over. And it leaves this.

Wacky, right?

I need to keep messing with this and find out how to use this trick. I’m thinking next time I want to knit a hat, I’ll crochet it!

Happy Yarning!
