I don't place knitting or crochet as one better than the other. I do both and enjoy both! I prefer knitting most clothing and crochet is house items and whatever catches my interest. I have been doing both for over 48 years. I do many other needle crafts as well as sewing, quilting. I will say after watching some videos on it I think if you want a knitted looking item without knitting it then this would be your method. I did learn Tunisian and found it took too long for me and went back to my knitting. I am always on in the learning mode but this is one technique I will leave alone as I like my current knitting method.
