Knitting and crochet are methods of manipulating yarn to create a textile or fabric. Knitting creates multiple loops of stitches and knitted fabric consists of a number of consecutive rows of interlocking loops. Crochet creates similar fabric using a crochet hook. In crochet, each stitch is completed before proceeding with the next, while knitting keeps many stitches open at a time. Different types of yarns, needle sizes, and stitch types create fabrics with various different properties in terms of colour, texture, weight and warmth.
