Which is the easier craft? Knitting or crochet?
I have recently learned to do both, but find crochet to be more forgiving and quicker. Because I haven't yet learned to read patterns correctly, I have done several projects "freestyle," so continue to favor crochet. What are your thoughts?
I agree I think crocheting is easier and as you say more forgiving. I can knit but that whole dropping a stitch thing happens to me way too often. Crocheting is more fun, in my mind anyway.
Personally I would think crochet. I learned to crochet in a week when I was eleven...but I have spent years trying to knit and still can't do it!
I think crocheting is easier. You don't have to coordinate 2 needles, and in knitting, if you drop stitch, it's not as easy to recover it as it is in crocheting. That being said, I have found that knitting seems to be more flexible and have more projects, because it has a tighter weave when done correctly.

What type of craft do you like to do? (knitting, crocheting, painting, etc)I love to experiment. I do quite a bit of painting, but I also really enjoy crocheting, and making jewelry and polymer clay.
