Crochet clothes are ideal clothing for newborn babies and what can be more perfect than a crochet christening gift ?
First of all, people often confuse knitting and crochet clothes. The majority of the time if someone sees another person crocheting they think they are knitting. The term knitting has been around for centuries so any time people see yarn and hook or needle they think Knitting. But the funny thing is more people know how to crochet than knit
Outfits are always ideal for formal events due to the uniformity of colour and design, however the second most popular purchase seems to a cardigan or jacket that is matched with a pair of booties
Did You Know?….
Crochet is a process of creating fabric from yarn or thread using a hook. The word is derived from the French word “crochet”, meaning hook. Crocheting, similar to knitting, consists of pulling loops of yarn through other loops. Crochet differs from knitting in that only one loop is active at one time (the sole exception being Tunisian Crochet) and that a crochet hook is used instead of knitting needles.
Knitting can be accomplished by machine, while many crochet stitches can only be crafted by hand. Although some crochet patterns can emulate the appearance of knitting, distinctive crochet patterns such as the Granny Square cannot be simulated by other methods.
