What is the best method of casting on knitting?
The long-tail cast -on method is probably the most popular among experienced knitters. It does take a bit of practice to get this method down, but once you understand what you’re doing it’s quick and easy to get stitches on the needle. Uses: The long-tail cast -on also counts as a row of knitting, which is nice.
Is crocheting or knitting better?
Knitting uses a pair of long needles to form the loops, moving a set of loops from one needle to another; the stitches are held on the needle.
