this is a good project to try steeking. I think if you are an experienced crocheter you can steeking. My problem mostly arose from the fact that even though I've been knitting for years I don't really know how to crochet very well. I'm a fast knitter but a VERY VERY slow crocheter and I didn't pick up all the stitches when i crocheted. This pattern gives very good instructions on how to steek. I just had to learn how to crochet in order to do it.
