Easier to learn but is harder on the wrists. There are lots of motions and therefor it tired my wrists out more plus is was slower. Purling is easier
so much faster and less movement of the wrists so faster as well. Knit stich is a breeze, but purl seems a little harder.
Of course I was also trying to learn from a book... so I think with the videos they might be equally easy to learn.
