It worked well enough for my purposes, and it was all gonna be hidden in the selvedge anyway. Of course this meant slipping the stitches off the end of the crochet hook onto the needle to continue, but at that point as long as I got some loops on a needle I didn't really care how it happened.
I want Tunisian hooks for my interchageable set so I can just slide them right to the cable and then switch back to the needle tip just for such occassions. I also need to pick up those stitches on a smaller needle, otherwise I get this really loose row where they're joined.
