I always say
" Both Crochet and Knitting are a craft that everyone can not make as one of their HAND works. "
" Each is like playing the Piano > you have a pattern/music and both hands are used to create a beautiful ending."

AND >> I have heard and seen some of the works ,and >>>> wellll
some are easy to learn and others are hard or never learned ! "

Determination and practice and patience are needed >
But >>>
I still can't do some things real good >like play the piano.
I think I could if I took lessons and had one. Cause I have learned to type on the Computer and Knit and Crochet.

Many crafts require the use of both hands doing something different and tension control is required in Knit and Crochet.

Choose both , you will use them both , but most start with Crochet , since only 1 hook is used to get the idea of making stitches.
