  • I am not a very good knitter, but if I use a fluffy yarn it takes about 3 hours to make one. That is just a straight knit stitch, no purling. Then it takes about 30 more minutes to accessorize it.

  • I prefer crochet,I use up to 3 yarns to make it heavier,but i can turn out a long scarf in one evening.Home made is so much better!

  • With chunky yarn and large needles and a simple pattern...maybe 2 hours.

    Worsted weight yarn and medium needles, and a little more interesting pattern (like a basket pattern with seed stitch borders) takes me a day.

    I'm a lefty, and knit Continental, so it goes really fast for me.

  • I started knitting a red and black scarf (k2, p2 stitches) about a week ago. I'm only 1/3 of the way through lol. I crochet WAY faster than I knit.

  • Are you knitting in the tradition way with the yarn in your right hand? I found the continental method much easier!


    Here is a video demonstrating it.

    It took some practice, but I find it 100times easier!
