Special Release — Not your ordinary duster

Here is a special pattern for you… and a really crazy one! This duster combines knitting and crochet! I guess this makes it a bistitchual pattern…

Designing this duster was a lot of work and it took me quite some time to find the perfect knitted background. So I decided to make this a paid pattern (with a photo tutorial for the chain-loops and my usual 10% discount of course!). I hope you can understand my point of view. And I hope that you’ re not mad with me if you are not bistitchual. I would say if you can knit but not crochet, it’s easier for you because only basic crochet techniques are used. Well, you still need a crochet hook. As for all crocheters who can’t knit, it’s not impossible to master this duster but the knitting is a large part. On the other hand it doesn’t matter if your square is crooked or your stitches uneven because nobody can see them anyway!

All I can say is that it has never been easier to learn a new skill. There are countless video and photo tutorials from people all over the world. And don’t forget all those groups and forums! I strive to expand my crochet and knitting skills, to create unusual designs, to find creative solutions to problems. Sometimes, I fail and things dont’t work as I thought they would — that’s part of the creative process. Sometimes, bringing two seperate things together is the answer, it worked for this duster. Maybe this pattern can bring crocheters and knitters together, who knows?
