Beautifully fresh crochet clothing designs
Knitted textiles made in manners similar to crocheting go back 1000 years, but what we would consider to be modern crocheting really began to blossom in the 19th century. Instruction books were published alongside this boom, and so these pattern books continue the long lasting cultural practice of sharing crocheting ideas throughout the community of craftspeople. In terms of clothing, you will find lots of beautiful ideas for pieces such as shawls, scarves and lighter spring tops.
