Crocheting vs knitting
June 6 at 6:53 AM
I can't do either but I was wondering which was easier... I want to start making dish cloths. Any advice? I travel a lot for work and need something to do with my hands when I am in a hotel room.

    I find crocheting much easier. But I know tons of people who prefer knitting... So I'm no help! Lol.

    I do both but for me crochet gets quicker results. However, I am biased because I have invested a lot of time in crochet projects and not as much in my knitting.

    It depends on who you ask. I do both but like knitting better. For me 8th seems to work up faster and it's easier to remember how to do all the stitches and what their abreveations are.

    Loom knitting is what I ended up doing after failing at crochet and knitting :)

    I prefer crochet. But I do suggest watching some youtube videos on whichever craft you choose. There are also tons of free patterns on the ravelry, redheart, and lionbrand websites for either.

    For dishcloths, I'd suggest crochet because the end product is usually thicker than knitting for the same-sized yarn.  There's lots of patterns available online or in craft stores, like this.

    Here's an example of knitted dishcloths.

    For a small project, you can go either way. Crochet is faster, while knitting only has two basic stitches, making it easier to learn.  I don't think either are particularly difficult.

    I have tried to crochet and failed, but I have been knitting for about 30 years.

    I find crocheting easier. I can't coordinate two needles. My grandma tried teaching me once. FAIL. LOL!

    I do both and have also picked up Tuscan Crochet that is a combo of knitting and crochet. I am doing two scarves in Tuscan Crochet .

    I crochet. Have tried knitting and it is hard I think. With crocheting you can take on a plane because it is not sharp like knitting needles. I have been told
