Crochet is a kind of needlework consisting of the interlocking of
looped stitches formed with single thread and a hooked needle. It is
a process of creating fabric from yarn, thread, or other material
strands. It has become one of the preferred hobbies during leisure
time dominantly by women, young and old, since you could
produce an item within a short period of time. But now, even men
are engaging to perform such skills.
The word is derived from the French word "croche", meaning hook
which has been used in the intricate process of lacemaking. Crochet
differs from knitting in a way that only one stitch is active at one
time, and a single crochet hook is used instead of two knitting
No one really knows the origin of crochet. However, it is widely
known that the fine crochet was worked on by nuns in the 16th
century in Europe, Ireland. What do you think is the first crocheted
product ever produced? Right! It is the laced mats pioneered by the
Irish and universally known as Irish crochet. At that time, nuns
taught it to their pupils and the proceeds derived from the sales of
crocheted articles helped alleviate poverty of the Irish people.
Crochet articles give a lacy effect. They are also durable and the
designs can be easily created by combining a variety of yarn with
different colors and crochet stitches. At present, there are several
crocheted articles available in the market such as shawls, blouses,
and sweaters. Other interesting products are table runners, doilies
and curtains, bags and decorative edgings for handkerchiefs.
Before performing crochet, it is necessary to check
all the materials and tools to save time and energy.
Do not forget that without them, you cannot produce
a crocheted article and it will not also be beneficial if
the user doesn’t know how to use it properly.

1. Crochet hooks – are made either by wood, bone,

plastic, steel and aluminum


A. Steel crochet hooks are used for cotton threads
and are about five (5) inches long with sizes from 00
as the largest and 14 as t
B. Bone hooks
-are very rare now and
being replaced by plastic
and aluminum hooks and
are used for heavier types of
crocheting like pot holders,
sweater and shawls. They
are available at six inches
C. Afghan hooks have the
same length as knitting pins
but have hooks at one end.
They are made up of plastic
or aluminum, 9 to 10 inches
long. These are used for
Afghan stitch only.
- Multiple of Stitches:A pattern often requires an exact number of
stitches, to be made properly.When the directions say, for example,
“multiple of 6 sts,” it means the number of stitches must be divisible by
6, 12, 18, 24, etc.
-Multiple of 6 sts plus 3” would be 15, 21, 27, etc.
-Work Even: This means to continue working without increasing or
-Repeat From *: This means that all instructions following the * are to
be repeated as many times as specified in the directions.
-Parentheses (): This is used in two ways : To enclose directions for larger
sizes as listed at the start of each set of directions, and to indicate that
the instructions which they enclose are to be repeated immediately
after. For example, (tr, ch1) means that you should make a treble, chain
1, treble, ch1.

Holding the yarn
keep in mind that the yarn should be
kept in tension over the index finger
so it is easily manipulated. In this
way too, an even tension around the
hook can be produced.
The chain stitch is considered as the foundation or the base of the most crochet
stitches and patterns. Therefore, chain stitch should be the first to master.
The following are some tips that would guide you as you go
along with your project:
1. Remember that it's all in the wrists. As you work, your
arms should stay comfortably at your sides allowing your
wrists to do most of the actions.
2. 2. Stay relaxed. If you make a mistake, simply start over.
3. 3. Choose light yarn rather than dark; it can be
challenging to see your stitches when you work with
yarns in dark colors.
4. 4. The tighter you hold the yarn and hook, the harder it
will be to work. It might be awkward at first, but soon it
will become second nature to you—with a little practice.
