The word crochet is derived from the Old French crochet, a diminutive of croche, in turn from the Germanic croc, both meaning “hook”. Crochet is a needlework technique performed using a crochet hook plus fiber or other similar material. Most typically, this material is yarn or crochet thread, but it might also be fabric, wire, twine, or other innovative material.
AND WE BELIEVE IN A FACT THAT QUITE SIMPLY, CROCHET FEEDS THE HUMAN NEED FOR BALANCE IN OUR LIVES. MAKING SOMETHING WITH OUR HANDS REFLECTS SOMETHING BASIC ABOUT OURSELVES. WE WANT TO WORK HARD WITHOUT LOSING TOUCH WITH OUR CREATIVE SELVES; WE WANT TO EARN MONEY WITHOUT LOSING OUR SOULS, AND WE WANT TO BE PART OF A LARGER PICTURE OF HUMAN PROGRESSION WHILE STILL MAINTAINING OUR INDIVIDUALITY. YOU CAN CROCHET WITH ANY FINE, FLEXIBLE, CONTINUOUS MATERIAL THAT YOU CAN WRAP AROUND A CROCHET HOOK.
