This tutorial explains ‘Shepherds knitting’, also known as Bosnian crochet. I could not find much about this technique in books or online, so I made a tutorial with pictures and explanation. This technique is an easy way to make gloves, for example. I don’t use instructions, but amend my work while I’m working on it to get the right size.
This is meant as a guideline rather than a pattern. You can decide what yarn you want to use, however use a hook that is at least 2 mm larger than the advised size for your yarn size. This stitch is made in the round, creating a tunnel. You can decide how large you want your work to be by amending the length of the chain you make in the first step. If you want to make the tube wider you can either start using a larger hook, or increase your stitches. The same goes for making the tube tighter, either use a smaller hook or decrease your stitches. Once you have started you can make your tunnel as long as you want to; just cast off with an ss.
