    I think crocheting is easier then knitting especially when you make a mistake, When you make a mistake in crochet you pull out your stitches and begin again no big deal, But when you make a mistake in knitting you back knit meaning you undo each stitch in the line, so you unfurl a stitch or unknit a stitch very time consuming

    I love crochet for all the above reasons but my big one is that a mistake is much easier and quicker to correct. For this reason alone I can say that crochet gives me the pleasure and satisfaction I look for when I tackle a project.

  • I can do both, but I prefer to crochet because when I knit it like I’m a flapping bird. It’s also so much easier to do wherever I go.

    Crochet is better because you can get so creative with it. Also, if you need to take it apart a row or two, you don’t risk ruining the whole project by having stitches slip down uncontrollably and then splitting your yarn trying to get them back creating sore-to-the-eye stitches.
