I'm planning on making a BIG blanket using tunisian crochet, which is all completely new to me. I'm used to crocheting so not sure how it's going to work when I need to keep all the stitches on the needle - will the tunisian hooks be long enough for such a big project? This is probably a really dumb question but I want to make sure I've got the right idea before I make an attempt at it.

I'm making a large Tunisian blanket right now.  I'm using a 9mm double ended hook (with an elastic band wrapped around one end to keep the stitches on); it's about 14" long.  I'm using Bernat Soft Boucle, and I have something like 163 stitches.  They *just* fit.

The blanket will fit on top of a queen sized bed without hanging over the sides.


I know that cabled tunisian hooks exist - basically it's just a hook with a long cable, with a stopped at the end of the cable - but I don't know where you can buy them.  They hold lots of stitches, though. ^_^
