1. My main aim is to make clothing
A) Yes, I'd love to create things I can wear
B) Not really, I'd rather make toys and homewares
This is an important question to ask yourself, as there is a distinction between the two. Knitted material is generally lighter, thinner, denser and more form-fitting than crocheted material, and therefore can make more flattering clothing. In addition, colour distinctions tend to be neater, which is another key consideration. On the other hand, it's easier to make toys and homeware with crochet, as you can work in the round to achieve cleaner shapes and easily create motifs. In general, crochet stitches are more durable as well and are perfect for creating bulkier projects that will be subject to more wear and tear.
