Knitting is with two kneedles and crochet it with a hook.
I mean more obvious difference is that crochet uses one hook while most knitting uses two needles.
Both crafts utilize yarn or fiber, and you can make the same sorts of projects sweaters, shawls, wraps, blankets, afghans, scarves, hats, mittens, socks

All you need to crochet is a continuous strand of yarn and a single hook. You start with a slip stitch and continue to make loops (called chains), creating a foundation row. Rows are built on this foundation. Crochet stitches are made with loops and wrapping yarn around the hook. The loops are drawn through the wrapped yarn to make the stitches.
You can crochet in rows, keeping your work flat, or you can join your stitches, creating a ring and work in the round.

One of the most recognized crochet patterns is the Granny Square motif. These colorful crocheted squares or circles are joined together to create afghans and vests. At the fall European couture collection, a Granny Wrap was a big hit and was even featured on a recent cover of Vogue Magazine.
