Picking Up Stitches the "Pretty Way" Kathy, aka - Grumperina - This link says the account has been suspended. hopefully, it will be restored at some point because I would like to learn how to pick up stitches the pretty way!
Interesting set-up for socks. You do the top of the foot first, then a short row toe, and finally you work the bottom of the sock in stockinette picking up stitches along the edges. Free pattern on ravelry
Knitting and crocheting both use yarn to create fabric but the two methods differ and produce different results. It's important to be aware of the differences between knitting and crochet before deciding which method to use for a project.
