What Is Crochet?
Before you jump into any projects, it's important to have a basic understanding of what crochet is. Crochet is a type of needlework that uses a hook, yarn, or thread to create fabric, lace, and other items.
It’s been around for centuries and has evolved from simple stitches to more complex patterns. You can crochet many things, such as clothing, blankets, toys, and more.
Tools And Supplies You Need To Crochet
The supply list for crocheting is short. You only need a crochet hook, yarn or thread, and scissors.
GANXXET Combed Cotton is an excellent choice for your yarn. It's made from natural materials, is easy to work with, and comes in several fun colors!
Once you have your supplies, review some crocheting basics. Start with the chain stitch, which is the foundation of most crochet projects. From there, learn how to do single crochet and double crochet.
These stitches will help you complete numerous projects, from simple baby blankets to intricate lace doilies.
