Crochet

stitches

Crochet (from French croche, “hook”), method of making fabrics, garments, lace, and even rugs, from threads or yarn, using a hook (made of steel, ivory, bone, or wood). The crochet stitch links each loop of thread to another to produce a foundation chain, into which additional rows of stitches are added. Single and double crochet are the basic forms from which all other stitches and patterns have developed.
