Crochet Definition — What Is Crochet?

crochet

 

 

 

By Amy Solovay
Crochet Expert

Definition:

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.

The Goals in Crochet:

The most popular goal in crochet is obvious: Crochet enthusiasts hope to complete crochet projects, which are typically objects that are useful, attractive or beneficial in some way. Popular projects include afghans, baby blankets, baby booties, scarves, hats, granny squares, shawls, purses, tote bags and others. It’s possible to crochet a variety of different things, including jewelry, socks, and curtains.

Also, it’s possible to crochet various components to use in other items. For example, crochet trims and edgings are popular projects; you can apply them to crocheted items, knitted items, and sewn items (including ready made store-bought items.) For example, you could buy some socks, towels and / or pillowcases, and add a crocheted edging to each.

Crochet appliques are also popular projects.

Not all crocheters are concerned with completing crochet projects. There are other goals, benefits and advantages to crochet besides just the projects.
