The Internet let me down...

But Buddha came through for me.

I had decided to turn my old pants into crochet rag rugs. I even purchased the biggest crochet hook I could find. But I couldn't find any instructions on the internet on how to crochet. Well, none that I could understand.

Yesterday Buddha gave me a "Discover Crochet Kit" from Harrisville Designs So I can learn how to crochet. it is harder than I thought, But I'm getting the hang of it. Buddha had shown me how to make a chain stitch but last night I finally did a second row of single crochet.

Oh, niftiness! Oh, looms! How keen!

Good luck with the crocheting. Let me know how it goes. Can you make the same things with crochet that you can with knitting? I've always wondered.

The short answer is "no"

Buddha tells me that while you clearly can Crochet a Hyperbolic Plane such as a Lorenz manifold you can not knit them.

In general crochet seems to handle curved surfaces better than knitting does. But knitting does larger surfaces faster.
