Knitting and crocheting are similar yet distinct crafts that involve the use of yarn and needles or hooks to create fabric. Knitting is the process of creating fabric by looping yarn over two or more needles, while crocheting uses a single hook to interlock yarn loops. With knitting, the loops are formed by pulling a strand of the yarn through another loop, while in crocheting, the loops are formed by wrapping the yarn around the hook.
Knitting is usually done with two needles, while crocheting is done with a single hook. Knitting needles are longer than crochet hooks and typically have a point at one end. The stitches created with knitting are typically more uniform and tighter than the stitches created with crocheting. Knitting also requires more complex techniques than crocheting, such as increases, decreases, and cables.
