Definitely Knit?
Yes, no hooks were used to make this project. For those of us who love the look of a crocheted afghan or a classic granny square but prefer to knit, this is the way to go. Using a combination of slipped stitches, increases, and decreases, an effect similar to the look of crochet can be achieved.

For some video tutorials on the basic elements of this technique check out this youtube playlist. This pattern requires some knowledge of intermediate knitting techniques, the ability to increase, decrease, and to try new things.
