What’s The Difference Between Crochet and Knitting?


At Salem Style, all of our handmade items are made by crochet. Crochet and knitting are similar that they both require a lot of dedication and skill, but there are key differences:

Supplies: Knitting is done with two needles, while crochet uses one hook.

How it’s made: Knitting can be done by hand, machine or loom while crochet is always 100% handmade.

Unraveling: A dropped knit stitch can cause it to unravel easily, while with crocheting, it’s less likely to unravel.

At the end of the day, they are both great, but we have chosen to stick with crochet.
