The main difference between crocheting and knitting is that the former makes use of one hook for the main stitching process while the latter requires two long needles. That’s why crochet tends to be the preferred method for novice weavers. Plus, you can easily look up crochet guides and tutorial videos online to learn stitches and beginner-friendly methods.

Here are the basic tools you'll need in your crochet starter kit:

  • Yarn
  • Crochet hooks (of varying sizes or in sizes that fit your yarn of choice)
  • Scissors or a thread cutter
  • Darning needles
  • Stitch markers

Gantsilyo offers yarn in a wide variety of brands, thickness levels, colors, and more, depending on what best suits your crafting projects. They also have hooks in a range of shapes and sizes to fit your yarn and pattern of choice.
