Colorful touch of Regular things

Crochet is a needlework technique performed using a crochet hook plus fiber or other similar material. Most typically, this material is yarn or crochet thread, but it might also be fabric, wire, twine, or other innovative material. 

People often confuse crochet with knitting. The two techniques do share common elements; for example, both crocheters and knitters utilize yarn to create their projects. It is possible to create similar types of projects with either technique: afghans, shawls, hats, scarves, etc.

At a glance, you can tell whether a person is knitting or crocheting by looking at the tools (s)he is using. If (s)he’s using a hook, (s)he’s crocheting; if she’s using two pointed needles, or perhaps a circular knitting needle, (s)he’s knitting.
