Have you ever wondered which is more difficult – knitting or crocheting? While largely a matter of preference, crocheting can be easier for beginners. You only need one crochet hook, and you can pause your project more easily without worrying about dropping stitches.
Knitting sometimes uses two strands of yarn at a time, whereas crochet usually uses one. Fixing mistakes also tend to be easier to do with crochet than with knitting. Generally, knitted items will be softer, and crocheted items will be stiffer – which is useful when creating amigurumi (yarn stuffed animals).
Whichever one you choose, both knitting and crocheting are creative and relaxing, and produce beautifully finished products!
