This is a clever idea. It might be interesting to try it with size 10 crochet thread instead of yarn; I occasionally see it very cheap at the thrift stores.

I think you are going to be an "advanced" knitter in no time. I have thought to do this, but I'm too lazy...been working on machine knitting some yardage to mimic Lion Brand's "Ruffles" yarn.
They don't make it in red.
Great job...and keep inventing. The knitting world needs people like you.

what a nifty idea! i bet if you knit up that scarf with a much larger needle (say a 15, or a 17?) you'd end up with a pretty piece of lacy-ish fabric, with the extra detail of the crochet chain showing up quite nicely..

i'm gonna have to take a second look at some of the lace weight yarns sitting around my house too..  Grin

what did you do to keep things neat while you were making your chain? did you wrap it all up into a ball at the same time you were crocheting it?

I would crochet for a while, and then knit it up.  Kind of did both at the same time.  I did it again with some other yarn, and didn't do that, and tried to keep it neat, but it just turned into a mess.  So the first way was great, but i'm sure if you can make a propper ball (unlike me) it would be ok Cheesy

I've thought of this too, but like someone else said, I don't have the patience.  Undecided So, kudos for putting a great idea into action!!! It'll look awesome as a handbag or hook/needle roll!

I tried it with some cotton kitchen yarn, just to see it up close.  I made a dishcloth and you weren't kidding about it being really stretchy! I'm going to have to fold it in half and stitch it up, but I still like it!
