Hey guys, Lindsey from The Chesapeake Needle here! I’m so excited to share some insight about different types of fiber arts with you all today.
As a yarn-lover who often finds herself making on the go, one of the questions I get asked the most when I’m crocheting in public is “Wow, you can knit?” In the same way, almost every time I knit away from home, someone comes up to ask “What are you crocheting?” While it may seem obvious to those of us who actually use both of these skills, many people haven’t the slightest clue what could be different between knitting and crochet. I’m hoping to give you guys some helpful information so that the next time someone asks you “Aren’t knitting and crochet the same thing?”, you’ll know exactly how to answer them!

Very informative blog post. I am strictly a crocheter at the moment. I would love to master knitting because I live in the desert and a lighter material would be nice! But I have too many ideas that require a hook. Wonderful post!
Thank you for your article. I crochet, but I would love to learn to knit but my clumsy fingers cannot hold 2 needles. Is it easier to use 2 separate needles or the round needles? What needles do you recommend to learn knitting?
