Hi, I just found a (long) double ended crochet hook yesterday at my local thrifstore, and being still quite a novice crocheter I don't know what you use those for..

A quick googling seems to suggest it'd be reversible tunisian crochet, but a lady said she could do a scarf in no time..

Any idea/suggestion would be appreciated, thanks !!

i'm not sure we're talking about the same thing, but i have a double-ended hook here. each end has a different size of hook, so i got a small one and a big one for a smaller price. i only use one end in each project, though.

You can use them to make reversible blankets, dishcloths, scarves. I have one it's a size H but both ends are the same size the one you have colorlessblue sounds interesting. I have some books that came with mine that shows how to even make a ripple.

Thanks, yep mine seems the same size on both ends too. Wasn't any booklet with mine though..  ;-)
I'll have to do google that then to see if I can find any instructions or patterns online..

Thanks !
