It's really quite complicated to figure out if it's even possible. The gauge is much different.

Some patterns are no problem at all, some are a pain and never look right. For instance, a feather and fan only takes a little thought and a choice of how you want the finished fabric to look, while knitted granny squares...heh, I know they're possible but they don't look right to me. Charted things done in single crochet translate pretty well, although you may want to play with the row count a little because knitting will look "squattier".

Of course, crochet enabler that I am, I'd say just grab the videos, a hook and some yarn and mess with them until it works for you. Not a whole lot in this world is actually impossible; some things are more difficult than others. Fortunately, crochet isn't one of those

If you go to the web site www.knitting-crochet.com there is a book you can buy that supposedly will tell you how to convert patterns. I've not bought the book so I don't know if it is worth the $.
