Craft Fair

Posted by: How to crochet | Comments (1)

craft fairYesterday I took part in our local Craft Fair. My crochet baby jacket was a hit as usual. So many talented people!!! Had an absolute blast!! Just looking at crochet baby jacket next to my jewelery has inspired me to create crochet jewellery.

Well, crochet jewelery can be easily done with beads using a fine thread or yarn.  I can always use jewellery wire, but I think it’s a little hard on the hands. Another option is to crochet a rope without beads by just using a fancy fine yarn or metallic thread. And then to add a medallion as a focal point. Watch out for more news on this!

History of Crochet

In the early 1800s, lace made materials are much expensive than the crochet products. In Europe, some communities use crochet products to identify their social status, which only indicate that they can afford crochet products and other lace made items. The craft of crocheting only requires less expensive supplies and materials, which are commonly threads and yarns that they can purchase in nearby markets.

Many assume that the craft of crocheting and knitting evolved in countries like China, Saudi Arabia, and Brazil. They have come up with this theory because of the cultural tradition of clothing used by the people living in these countries. Many experts also say that the craft of crocheting was more essential to bend the forefinger rather than its necessity for creating crochet and knitted products.
