Fiber artist, designer and blogger Jayna Grassel maintains that crocheting is easier than knitting, especially for beginner products such as dishrags. Grassel argues that crocheting's minimal required tools and ease of modification make it superior to knitting.
Grassel, who distributes a variety of free patterns for both knitting and crocheting, explains that crocheting is faster than knitting, which results in less frustration and greater satisfaction. In addition, she notes that crocheting only requires a single hook, while knitting requires two or more needles, making the knitting process more complicated. Finally, she explains that crocheting creates a thicker, more durable fabric, which is ideal for items such as dishtowels and scrubbies.
