As a crafter, it has always seemed to me that knitting is more popular than crocheting. People tend to be more familiar with the term, anyway. I couldn’t say how often I’ve heard someone mistake a crocheted object for having been knitted, but not so much for the reverse. I decided to investigate using Analytics for Twitter, comparing hashtags #knit and #crochet, as well as a few related items: the hashtag #sew and keywords crafting and fiber arts. The search covered the time span of February 8 – 15, 2013.
