This is a wonderful opportunity for you to practice your new hook-knitted skills by making new
stitches and combining them with the kind of crochet you are used to. It is a sampler scarflet that is not only fun but will open for you new possibilities when it comes to how you make your hook work for you!
By the way, these stitches can be used for other things also, for example, this first one would look lovely in a shawl.

If it wasn't because I have a laptop and can work from my bed, I wouldn't have posted until weeks from now. So please, bear with me, I'll get back to you when I can.
