Knitting vs Crochet:

Knitting is one method using yarn that can be manipulated to create a textile or fabric. It may be done by hand or machine. This practice creates stitches: loops of yarn in a row, either flat or in the round. Usually there are many active stitches on the knitting needle at any given time.

Crochet is another method with a different process creates textiles by using a crochet hook to interlock loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials. The name for this method derives from the French term crochet, meaning ‘small hook’. Hooks can be made from a variety of materials, such as metal, wood, bamboo, or plastic and come in many different size variants.
