Knitting vs. Crocheting

Have you ever been asked “What are you knitting?” or “Is that knitting or crocheting?” It's a common question that many avid crocheters receive. Maybe you have heard this once or twice in your life. To an avid crocheter the difference between these two crafts might be obvious, but that's not true for everyone. If you are one of those people that would like to know what the difference is for knitting versus crocheting, then check out the breakdown listed below. 

 

Crochet  Knitting
  1. one hook
  2. more difficult
  3. faster pace
  4. more yarn
  5. bulkier stitches
  1. two needles
  2. easier
  3. slower pace
  4. less yarn
  5. closer stitches

 

Many who crochet might say that crocheting is easier, and those who knit might say the same for knitting. It really depends on the experience of each person. The best scenario is to make sure that you feel comfortable in whatever hobby you choose. Try both, and go from there. Of course, you do not have to choose - you can always do both. 

 

Fun fact!

Did you know that knitting is the most common search word in Google - when people are actually searching for crochet?

Please comment below about your ideas and opinions on crocheting versus knitting.

  • Hi Maggie,

    I crochet and knit. I haven’t seen all of your videos yet, but I bet you do both too. Is that true?

    Love your blog! ?

    Thank you!
