Does any one else Crochet or Knit
I was wondering how many in here Crochet and Knit?
I do both but my Favorite is Crocheting
I knit and I've been trying to teach myself to crochet for quite some time, it's rather tricky. Do you have any advice?
I have a few books i dont use any more Cat, maybe we can do a swap
I've tried loads of books, I've got the Happy Hooker and about 3 others. I think I need someone to show me visually or sit down with me until I can do it. Does anyone know of any good video tutorials on the internet?
I started knitting again last Jan(after over 11years absence!) I love it, haven't crocheted yet, need to get better at the knitting first.
I found this site for some tutorial videos for crochet
I picked both up at the same time , took me a bit but i got it I finally learned the diagonal stitch today wooohooo
I've done a little bit of sewing when we did it in primary school a couple years back but I've forgotten now. We made scarfs and mine had a lot of holes in it and seemed to keep on getting wider and mum got mad because i just kept going refusing to fix the mistakes- not so good memories! In the school holidays I might relearn how to knit and start to learn how to crochet. One question for everyone though- what's the difference beteween the two?
I begged my mum to teach me to knit a while ago, but I'm really impatient and bad at maths, so all I've done so far is knit scarves!
I'm looking for a nice fingerless glove pattern though, as I have this lovelysoft wool
Knittin'Kitten I knit these fingerless gloves a while ago and they turned out okay, no knitting in the round so pretty easy The only thing I did different was made them a little longer in the main part.
Shivi, I'm sure there are other things, but with knitting you have two sticks, crocheting you have one stick with a curve at the end..but I could even be wrong about that as it's years since I saw someone crochet!
Oh wow thankyou lovely!
What does BO mean though?
Bind Off, basically how you knit off the last stitches, otherwise known as casting off.
I prefer crocheting more then knitting though
Thankyou darling =)
I do hope to learn crochet at some stage, my mother used to crochet little baby hats and things when I was younger, but she hasn't done anything like that in over 15years I think! I may have to get her knitting when she visits me this xmas! haha
I knit, and know how to crochet but find it really difficult.
Also, I tend to be really enthusiastic about my knitting for a few days, then get bored of it and not go back to it for about a year >.<
