8 Projects You Won't Believe Are Crochet!

crochet-knit
As a crocheter, I've always wanted to knit because I love ribbed and welted textures. I'm learning, but it'll be awhile before I'm confident enough to knit a sweater ... so in the meantime, I'll share some recent crochet projects from Lion Brand's Patternfinder that I initially mistook for knit -- perfect projects for a crocheter like myself!

There are a two common techniques you can use to create a knit effect in crochet.  You can work horizontally, like in the Tiered Tunic, to give the fabric-like appearance you often see in knitting. Or, another technique is to use front and back post stitches to create the ribbed look you see in the Split Collar Capelet.

Below is a collections of my favorite patterns to get you started:

    I made the pom beret. Came out great.

    I have the opposite problem. I am an intermediate knitter and a very beginner at crochet, but I like the look of crochet and hope to make some crochet garments someday.
