Crochet is a French term derived from the name of an instrument that is in crooked shape like a hook from which the work is done. The crochet hook differs for every different yarn and thread. Crochet artisans don't use pointy needles or machines to do their projects; they use a single crochet hook. Crochet is always done by hand, never by machine. Crochet is one of the arts, which is simple and versatile in form. A fabric product made out of crochet art comes in many ways like a door hanging, splendid throws, an elegant wrap, a cozy scarf, shawls, pillow cover, table mats, bedspreads, toys, fancy bags, purses, and many more. It has also been an enormous part of elegant jewelry and fashionable clothing.
