1. Ditch the Long Needles
One of the biggest difficulties I had with knitting was maneuvering the long needles. They just felt so awkward and uncomfortable. Luckily, some friends showed me how to knit back and forth on circular needles. With circular needles the flexible cable can be long, but the actual needle part you are holding is shorter, like a crochet hook.
2. Try Continental
Continental knitting requires holding the yarn in your left hand. This is something that you’re probably already comfortable with from your crochet, and you’ll be able to focus more energy on learning how to form the stitches.
3. A Yarn Over is Not a Yarn Over
Crochet and knitting both involve wrapping yarn around, but they do it differently. In the beginning, pay careful attention to whether your yarn over is front to back or back to front. With practice, it’ll become automatic, and your hands will wrap the yarn the right way without you having to think about it.
4. Use Your Crochet Hooks…When Knitting
Most knitters use crochet hooks to pick up dropped stitches, but there are several other ways they can come in handy. Take advantage of your crochet know-how and use a crochet cast on. The crochet cast on uses a crochet hook to create the stitches on to a knitting needle. If you use a piece of scrap yarn, it becomes a provisional cast on. You can also use a crochet hook for a crochet bind off.
