Crochet and Knitting : by Jenny Williams. Teacher at CraftlandWhen choosing between crochet and knitting the application is key. If you want something that is thicker and more structured or you would like to make a lot of non-linear designs using negative space (e.g. lace), choose crochet. If you want something smooth that drapes well, choose knitting. For instance, I prefer to crochet house slippers and knit socks because the crochet house slippers are thick enough to keep my feet warm and I don't mind if they are a bit stiff but for socks I need the smooth flexibility of knitting as I will wear them with shoes over them--which would push the knots of crochet socks into feet painfully.
