Tunisian crochet bridges the gap between crochet and knitting. You should test it out with this list of tunisian crochet stitches we've put together. #TunisianCrochet #TunisianCrochetStitches #CrochetForBeginners

I often see the argument of crochet vs. knit. People have very strong opinions on which craft they’re loyal to. But what if you didn’t have to choose? Tunisian crochet is a great skill for knitters and crocheters alike.

It’s often seen as a crossover between crochet and knitting, making it easy to learn for both parties. If you’re a knitter who wants to learn crochet for beginners,the tunisian technique is perfect for you. And vice versa if you want to learn to knit.

The crochet needles used in tunisian crochet are very similar to knitting needles. Tunisian crochet actually requires a specific tunisian crochet hook that is longer than a regular hook. It looks like a knitting needle with a hook at the end instead of a point.

If you’re looking to practice Tunisian crochet, a good set of hooks is necessary. This set of Bamboo Tunisian hooks are incredible and interchangeable – check it out here. Bamboo has a tighter grip on yarn so you won’t drop your stitches and these hooks are lightweight, making them great for crochet.

I think tunisian crochet is a skill everyone should learn. That’s why I’ve put together a list of all the tunisian crochet stitches you should test out.  With a good set of hooks and all these tutorials, you’ll master the technique in no time.

These are the basic crochet stitches you’ll need to work on tunisian crochet patterns. It’s all easy enough with a bit of determination and patience. See for yourself…

Tunisian Simple Stitch

Working on crochet stitch patterns in tunisian crochet can be daunting. By starting with the tunisian simple stitch (also known as the afghan stitch), you can focus on mastering the crochet basics. It’s called simple for a reason. This article will walk you through your crochet cast on, and forming your stitches into a squishy thick fabric.

Crochet vs Knitting

| Crochet

Crochet vs Knitting - How do you know which craft is best for you? How do you decide if you learn to crochet or learn to knit? This post is here to help you figure out which to start with. #crochet #knitting #knittingvscrochet

Crochet vs. Knitting

When getting into needlework, there are so many options to choose from. Two of the most popular options (and the two that cause the most indecision) are crochet and knitting. How do you know which craft is best for you? How do you decide if you learn to crochet or learn to knit?

This post is here to help you figure out which to start with. I’ll talk about the differences in crochet vs. knit, and share their similarities and benefits. I’ll even talk to you about what you need to get started and share some of my favorite simple patterns, crochet and knitting patterns included. By the end of it, you’ll be ready to learn how to crochet or learn knitting for beginners.

Benefits and Similarities
Crochet and knitting are crafts that use knitting yarn and stitchwork to create garments and other projects. And both methods have loads of benefits.

To start, crocheting and knitting are relatively inexpensive hobbies as a beginner. You can find loads of easy knitting patterns online. Same for crochet patterns. Then all you need to start is a set of needles for casting on knitting. And for crochet for beginners, you need a crochet hook. Grab a pair of scissors and some simple yarn, and you’re set. This makes it an easy hobby to enjoy for all ages.

Another benefit is how relaxing many find the two crafts. Relaxation can lower your blood pressure and heart rate. That’s what makes beginner crochet and knitting an excellent treatment for anxiety and panic attacks. It’s also great brain stimulation which helps us as we grow older. When you learn how to knit or learn how to crochet, it requires hand eye coordination and some math skills. So, you can see how beneficial this is for our brains.

Once you learn how to read one type of pattern, you can usually pick up how to read the other easily. This is because many of the abbreviations and pattern formats are similar. You can also make the same types of projects, whether knitted or crocheted. If you invest your time in learning how to crochet for beginners, you’ll probably have an easier time learning how to knit for beginners later on. And vice versa.

The most important similarity between the two, is that they both require patience and determination. You have to be gentle with yourself when learning and be prepared to make mistakes. You also have to dedicate time to working on your projects in order to complete them. It can be a lot of work, but the finished projects for crochet and knit alike, are worth it.

While these similarities bind the two crafts, there are also important differences that will determine which craft is right for you.

Determining Which One is For You: Crochet vs. Knit

A side by side comparison between knit and crochet. Crochet and knitting are crafts that use knitting yarn and stitchwork to create garments and other projects. And both methods have loads of benefits. #crochet #knitting #knittingvscrochet

There are several key differences between crochet and knitting. And these differences are what will make one a better fit for you over the other. To start, the above stitch pictures show how different crochet stitches look from knit stitches. Knit stitches look like little V’s or straight lines. While basic crochet stitches like single crochet, have a knotted look.  

I first learned knitting when I was in college. It was easy to pick up, and I loved how logical it was. But one thing I struggled with was how much time the projects took. You see, knit stitches are smaller than crochet, so knit projects work up slower. When I crocheted for the first time, one of the things I preferred was how much faster I could complete projects.

If you asked me which one is my favorite, knitting vs crochet, I couldn’t tell you. There are pros and cons to each craft.  You might decide you love both for different reasons (and you probably will). But I’m hoping that by sharing these differences with you, you can better choose the one you will enjoy the most. At the end of the day though, it comes down to personal preference.

Choose Crochet if…

  • You like projects that have bigger stitches and work up faster
  • You’re afraid of making a mistake and want an easy fix
  • You like being more creative and loose with your patterns
  • You like holding your work and yarn in one hand, and your hook in the other
  • You like having one set of tools that works for every project
  • You like to save money on equipment

Choose Knitting if…

  • You like logic and straightforward directions
  • You want to make mostly garments and fashion projects
  • You have patience for longer, relaxing projects
  • You have dexterity and like working with both hands at once
  • You like having an assortment of tools for different projects
  • You like using slightly less yarn

What You’ll Need to Get Started Crocheting or Knitting

For crochet, you’ll need a crochet hook (I recommend size H for beginners), some simple worsted weight yarn, and a pair of scissors. You’ll also need a crochet stitch guide if you’re starting out and an easy pattern.  

Crochet tools Crochet and knitting are crafts that use knitting yarn and stitchwork to create garments and other projects. And both methods have loads of benefits. #crochet #knitting #knittingvscrochet

For knitting, you’ll need a pair of knitting needles (size 11 for beginners, straight or circular depending on your pattern), some simple worsted weight yarn and scissors. All knitting uses knit stitches and purl stitches. So once you master those, you’re set until you need to learn how to cast off at the end. But you can worry about that when you get there!

Knitting Tools Crochet and knitting are crafts that use knitting yarn and stitchwork to create garments and other projects. And both methods have loads of benefits. #crochet #knitting #knittingvscrochet

If you’re still having trouble deciding between the two, you could try learning tunisian crochet. Tunisian crochet is seen as a blend of both knitting and crochet. It creates a thick squishy fabric, and could help you learn knitting and crochet down the line. For this technique, you’ll need yarn, scissors and a tunisian hook, along with some stitch markers.

Crochet and Knitting on an Airplane 2019

Crochet and Knitting on an Airplane 2019

There’s something that sparks fear in the hearts of knitters all around the globe. One question. “Will my knitting needles get taken away at the airport?”

This is a very real fear, and while less likely, crocheters fear for their crochet needles as well. Luckily, there are ways to assure you won’t lose your favorite tools and can enjoy your hobby while in flight. If you’ve ever wondered “What can I take on a plane,” here’s the scoop.

What Can You Take on a Plane?

It’s important to note that guidelines for flying with knitting needles and crochet hooks vary all over the world. What’s allowed in one place may be prohibited in another. In order to avoid confiscation, it’s best to research the specific airport rules for each airport you’ll be flying in and out of.

 

Can I Bring My Knitting Needles on a Plane?

As a general guide, knitting needles and crochet hooks ARE ALLOWED in checked bags and carry on in the USA, UK and Canada (more on that below). There are of course stipulations to these rules. But can you bring scissors on a plane?

In the US, according to the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) scissor blades must measure 4” or less to be considered safe TSA scissors. Blunt rounded scissors (think kindergarten style) are also allowed. For a full list of what items you can take on a plane, check out the TSA’s list of “What Can I Bring”

Things are a little different in Canada and the UK. Scissor blades must measure 6 cm (2.4 in) or less to be considered safe for airplane travel. Of course, this is up to the TSA screener’s discretion and they can decide anything is unsafe to bring on board. For the full list of what you can carry on your flight in Canada and the UK, check out the Canadian “What I Can Bring” list and the UK’s “Hand Luggage Restrictions” list. For all other countries, you’ll need to research their rules on a case by case basis.

 

Ideas for Flying with Knitting Needles and Crochet Hooks

Some good alternative for flying with scissors or cutters would be TSA nail clippers or dental floss. Yes. Dental floss will be a game changer. Dental floss has a little blade inside that can be used to cut yarn. When my travel scissors didn’t arrive in time for my recent flight, I used this technique and it worked like a charm. Also, if your knitting needles are confiscated, the dental floss can be used to hold your stitches so you don’t lose your project.
Crochet and Knitting on an Airplane

 

Preferred Types of Knitting Needles to Take on a Plane

While knitting needles are allowed, the airports tend to prefer bamboo or plastic over metal. They also prefer circular knitting needles. These seem less threatening and are actually better for you and your neighbors on the plane. You see, circular needles take a smaller range of motion and tend to be smaller. The smaller your needles, the better chance of you passing airport security with them. They’re also more practical. Having circular needles means you can’t drop and lose a knitting needle like you could with straights.

 

Best Practice for Traveling with Knitting Needles, Crochet Hooks and Notions

It’s a good idea to wrap your needles or hooks up in a sheath or blanket to help prevent injury of TSA agents. They don’t want to be poked when they’re doing a safety check on your bag. Point protectors for circular knitting needles are also ideal to make sure your needle tips are protected. Wrapping your sharp objects up safely is a nice way to be considerate of the safety agents.

As far as notions go, it’s best to have a little notions kit for traveling. So everything is in one place. All your knitting tools such as stitch markers, yarn needles, tape measure etc can be kept in one convenient place. This means you don’t have to dig for it once you’re on the plane and having it all together is easier for the agents.  

Crochet and Knitting on an Airplane

Flying Home or To Different Countries

Also remember the country you’re flying home from as well. I was recently on a vacation to Mexico and while I knew there were no problems going through security in Canada, I did get stopped in security at the Cancun Airport. I told the security agent that I called my airline prior to the flights to make sure I could bring my knitting needles onto the plane. My beautiful circular knitting needles were taken to a security manager and they made inquiries with my airline. In the end, I got approval to take the knitting needles on the flight but it was a stressful situation nonetheless. Best advice – be prepared!

Tips for Traveling with Knitting and Crochet Projects

There are a few tips you can use to ensure you have an easy trip with your favorite hobby. One of the worst things you can do is overpack.

Be practical with yourself about how much time you’ll have to work on a project during your trip and pack accordingly. If you’re going to be spending time with a lot of other people, you won’t have time to work on big, challenging projects. Don’t pack 12 balls of yarn because frankly, you won’t use them. As a general rule of thumb when traveling, it’s best to pick small projects such as hats and socks. And bring the knitting supplies to match. (I.e. 2 balls of yarn, an extra pair of needles or hook, and your notions kit). It also helps to have a zip up bag for all your supplies.

Know your pattern and have a backup of it. You might not have wifi. So, if your pattern is online, screenshot it, download the pdf or print out a physical copy to take with you. This will make sure you have the instructions you need to leisurely work on your project while away. It’s also best to have a few rows of your project started by the time you reach the airport. They are less likely to throw out your needles if they see you’re clearly working on something and aren’t just harboring sharp objects.

Be a Prepared Traveller

Finally, the two most important things to remember: Don’t bring anything you’re afraid to lose and bring an envelope with your address and stamp on it in case.

The fact is, no matter what the guidelines say about what can I carry on a plane, they can take anything from me if they see fit. So, it’s best to only bring stuff you don’t mind losing. Don’t bring your favorite pair of needles or favorite set of hooks. It’s not worth it.

If you feel strongly that you don’t want to lose any of your tools (me), it’s a good idea to bring a pre-addressed, ready to mail off envelope big enough to fit all your tools. If they do refuse to let you fly with them, you can put them in the envelope and mail it back home to yourself.

At the end of the day, you can’t control what they’ll let you fly with. But with these travel tips and tricks, you have a pretty good chance of enjoying a flight full of crafting and relaxing. Safe Travels!

Mermaid Vibes Infinity Crochet Scarf

Throughout the project, the yarn is held double. Pro Crochet Tip: it is easiest to complete double-stranded projects by winding the yarn together with a yarn winder from the beginning. Once you have your yarn, feed the ends of yarn of your two skeins of yarn together through the ball winder. You will now have a new ball of yarn where the yarn is held double throughout. Say goodbye to tangled yarn and dealing with two balls at once during your double-stranded projects!

Peek a Boo Crochet Scarf

The pattern is a little unconventional in that, in order to achieve the knit look of the crochet in the 3rd loop rows without working in the round, the instructions call for you to finish off after each 3rd loop row and connect back up at the beginning of the row. It’s a little tedious, but well worth it for the final effect. And thankfully all those ends can easily be incorporated into the fringe, making for less weaving in!
