Crochet

Crochet (English pronunciation: /krˈʃ/; French: [kʁɔʃɛ]) is a process of creating fabric from yarn, thread, or other material strands using a crochet hook. The word is derived from the French word "crochet", meaning hook. Hooks can be made of materials such as metals, woods, or plastic and are commercially manufactured as well as produced by artisans. Crocheting, like knitting, consists of pulling loops of material through other loops, but additionally incorporates wrapping the working material around the hook one or more times. Crochet differs from knitting in that only one stitch is active at one time (exceptions being Tunisian crochet and broomstick lace), stitches made with the same diameter of yarn are comparably taller, and a single crochet hook is used instead of two knitting needles. Additionally, crochet has its own system of symbols to represent stitch types.

I spend a lot of time looking at crochet patterns online and in books. I’m frequently amazed at how many original designs are out there but I will say that the oversaturation of crochet patterns in the market today means that sometimes it can start to feel like you’ve seen it all before. Then an original pattern will come along that makes you look twice and remember yet again how amazingly creative designers and artists can get with crochet. That’s the case with not just one but nearly every single crochet pattern in Blueprint Crochet Sweaters. From the stitch patterns to the garment shapes, these are crochet patterns that make you look twice and want to create! while most of the patterns are sweaters there are also variations including tanks, tunics and and the Burnt Plaid Dress shown above, which is my favorite of all of the designs.

"Floats" is a term used in colorwork. This word describes unused strands of yarn, thread or fiber that are carried across the back of a piece due to a color change on the front of the work. This term is used in the same context by crochet enthusiasts, hand knitters, and machine knitters.
