365 Ways to Wear Crochet: Storebought Sweater

I bought this brown sweater recently in a thrift store. I’ll be honest in saying that I’m not 100% sure it’s crochet. I am still not always able to tell the difference, which I’m a little embarrassed about, but it’s the case. I am almost sure that this is large hook single crochet with nylon novelty yarn but it’s possible it’s knit. In other thoughts, that scarf is one of my very favorite ever thrifted items purchased earlier this year from a Goodwill.

  3. Hi,
    This is definitely not crochet but knitting!

    • @biancabezig Thanks for the feedback. Someone else thought it might be hairpin lace. For my own knowledge, how can you tell that it’s knit? What’s the clue to look at?

      • @CrochetBlogger The even rows, the way the yarn goes. I think the yarn is sometimes worked twice or threetimes around the needle instead of one time. That way you get the long loops.
        You can look at google pictures about the difference between knitting en crocheting.

  4. I know I am late but can we get a close up of the scarf if you haven’t already looks very interesting :)

    • @msdgunter I hadn’t thought of that since it’s not crochet but it’s actually a super great scarf. I wear it all the time so I’ll have to take some pics soon and do a post follow-up!
