Are you familiar with Tunisian Crochet?

Wikipedia describes Tunisian Crochet in this way:
"Tunisian crochet, also known as Afghan crochet, is a type of crochet that uses an elongated hook, often with a stopper on the handle end, called an Afghan hook. It is sometimes considered to be a mixture of crocheting and knitting."
