Crochet has been forever linked with older people mainly because it was something we would see our grandmothers do when she had the time in front of the fire place in the winter and on the porch in spring and summer. However, it is with little surprise that today we can find simple crochet items incorporated in almost everything from designer clothes to decorative pieces for the house.
The Classy Simple Crochet
Simple crochet today adds class to almost anything for example, a crochet white collar on a black velvet dress with long sleeves gives it a touch of elegance and sophistication or a simple crochet center piece placed on top of the table cloth will enhance your spirits as well as the dining experience.
Once upon a time it used to be that only elderly folks would wear crochet today however, almost all designers have added crochet to their products such as: simple crochet lining for a touch of romance to a summer dress; a crochet motif on the bed sheets, simple crochet scarves or appliqué work to be added on sweaters, hats and so on.
