Crocheting is trending in the crafts world right now, and it’s no surprise. Both nostalgic and entertaining, this technique provides a crafty yet relaxing way to design unique clothing and décor items. What actually is crocheting? Most of us would have encountered crochet in some form or the other, whether as apparel or as accessories. The fine loop-like construction and the vibrant colours of the threads is an interesting way to break the monotony of items used for everyday fashion and living. It isn’t the name of the fabric itself, but rather, the process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread or strands of other materials using a hook. This name derives from French, meaning ‘small hook’
