TIPS ON CROCHET 1

Crochet is an art by learning which we can make a wide range of things like table mats, table clothes, cushion covers, flower motifs and artificial flowers, sweaters, shawls, bootees etc. Although so many different things can be made the main stitch involved is a chain, which is done in different way to form patterns. The crochet needle has a hook at one end and provision to hold it in the other end. The art of crochet is to form chains by pulling the thread with the help of the hook through the loop initially formed.
First of to learn the art easily it is better to know how to hold the crochet needle in the hand and how to hold the thread properly so that it flows easily and comfortably at ease so that we can work fast.. Needle should be held in one hand and the thread held in tension with the other hand. Once we learn the basic of forming the chain then we can move further and learn to make designs using the chain. By twisting the thread once or twice or thrice in the hook and then pulling them one by one we can form different designs like SC,DC, DDC, TDC etc; Then we should learn how to increase and decrease at the end of the work since it is helpful in making sweaters caps, etc;
