Knit Or Crochet

Knit or Crochet, one of the other or both?

Knit or crochet are a pair of crafts that are absolutely incredible in their depth, ability and expansiveness, especially when it comes to creating items. To make a knit or crochet items, a person has to know stitches & techniques of either craft, even going to extent of treading on the less-explored path of combination of these formats. Knitting and crocheting are, both, quite interesting in themselves although you may find crocheting easier to grasp than knitting.

With knitting or crocheting, you are exposed to the best of both worlds in a hobby that is guaranteed to open up a whole new world of possibilities for you.

Knitting is an older form of craft than crocheting. In fact, historical traces back to the 13th or 14th century have led us to believe that knitting became prevalent then, in the form we know today. Crocheting became popular in the 19th century when America began producing large quantities of cotton threads. With a vast variety of stitches and a number of items that can be created, it is of no wonder that knitting and crochet have become as popular today, as they have.

The most interesting aspect of knit crochet lies in its ability to accommodate knitting or crochet patterns, with the other form, to make some of the most creative patterns and items that you can think of.

There are a few differences between knitting and crocheting as such, especially with the tools they use, pointed needles in knitting and hooks in crocheting; their usage and also the techniques used in the two.

While knitting uses thinner tools while using one needle at a time to hold the finished work while the other continues doing the job, in crocheting the pattern is different. Crocheting requires you to make stitches into a row of stitches. Knitting has knit and purl as its basic stitches while crocheting brings, to this hobby of knit & crochet, many varieties such as block, waffle, cluster, double & single crochet, slip stitch and so on.

To knit or crochet, you need to have control over your tools and the yarn being used to make the patterns. Whether you decide to pay more emphasis on the design or the pattern, you are likely to have a greater chance of creativity when you combine these two wonderful craft-forms.

Whether an enthusiast of creating items made through knitting or crochet, or simply one who likes to collect these items for their own personal pleasure, the world of knitting or crochet as a lot in store for you.
