K is for Knitting


Knitting  VS. Crochet

 

Here is an example of similar “looks” in knitting and crochet.  I’m designing something that looks like bricks.

 

 

 


 
 

I like the knitted example much better because it achieves the look of bricks better.  However it takes a lot longer to make than the same size piece in crochet.


 

 

 

 

The crochet sample is okay but doesn’t look as much like bricks as I was hoping.  Plus the pattern was fiddly.  You had to finish off at the end of every row which means a ton of ends to weave in when done.

And that's a look into how I design projects.

  2. No, I didn't design the stitch. I'm designing something using this stitch. the knitted stitch is from the "ball band dishcloth" pattern and the crochet stitch is from a pattern book I bought the other day.

  5. Yea, the knitted one looks much more like bricks than the crochet version. Sometimes you just have to go insane and to the extra fiddle work if you want to achieve what you have in mind.
