Ever wondered, how a span of thread and a hooked needle can make a beautiful and intricate design material that can be used in more ways than even the designer had thought of. Yes, Crochet has come a long way from making a stole, shawl, dress, and hand-kerchief, home décor items to accessories, like bags, earrings and neck pieces.
Crochet is a process of creating textiles by using a crochet hook to interlock loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials. The name is derived from the French term crochet, meaning 'small hook'. The word “crochet” subsequently came to describe both the specific type of textile, and the hooked needle used to produce it. The key difference between crochet and knitting, beyond the implements used for their production, is that each stitch in crochet is completed before the next one is begun, while knitting keeps many stitches open at a time.
Using different type of crochet thread or yarn, it can be used to make Jewellery, neck warmer; poncho shawls scarfs which help in keeping you warm as well as fashionable.
