Crochet on the go with Hester Hedgehog!

I'm on a family road trip this weekend. Naturally, I brought a crafty project along to keep busy in the car. I'm working on Hester Hedgehog, a special creation for my godson.

Crochet on the Go Kit
  • Smallest current project & its yarn
  • 1 crochet hook
  • Tiny Scissors with a sheath
  • Yarn Needle
All this fits in a little clutch that I can throw in my purse or leave in the car. It is MUCH smaller than my usual work bag.

And, since this is a fairly labor intensive project, I'm not worried about running out of things to do.

The Stockinette Stitch & Reverse Stockinette

The two essential stitches in a knitter's skill set are Knit and Purl, and the best way to practice these by working the Stockinette Stitch. The Stockinette Stitch: Cast On:  Any number of stitches Row 1 (Right Side):  Knit all. Row 2:  (Wrong Side):  Purl all. Repeat Rows 1-2 as needed. Reverse Stockinette: This is the reverse side of the stockinette stitch.  The Purl side becomes the Right Side. Cast On:  Any number of stitches Row 1 (Right Side):  Purl all. Row 2 (Wrong Side):  Knit all. Repeat Rows 1-2 as needed.
