    Which is easier to learn: knitting or crocheting?

    I want to learn how to make winter accessories, little things like scarves and mitts. I will be teaching myself using books and you tube videos.

    It's very easy to learn finger and arm knitting! I'll link two youtube videos. But I warn you that it's addicting.

    Finger Knitting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsZsUBYU0qU

    Arm Knitting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=070qaUxEyp4

    I never bothered to learn knitting or crocheting after I learned to do these two things!

    I like both crocheting and knitting but I think it is easier to learn how to crochet. I know how to crochet but I am not sure about knitting. A colleague of mine showed me how to knit and I quite like it. Both are good to learn as extra skills.

      Crocheting looks harder to me but I will give it a shot. And you are right, its always good to have extra skills! Thanks for your response.

    For me, knitting was easier to learn but it doesn’t have to be the case with you. It all depends on tutorials that you follow and how well written or clear they are. I have published a hub on knitting for beginners so you can visit if you like. There you will also find some free patterns for crocheting the toys.
    If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
    Happy knitting/ crocheting.
