You will come to find that I am somewhat partial to crochet. It makes much more sense in my brain than knitting does, however I do knit. I am currently working on a project that I just made up myself using the Tunisian afghan stitch for crochet.
I did 5 rows dark pink and 3 rows light pink. And a 5.5 size crochet hook.
This is a site that explains how to do the crochet stitch.
