Crochet Department

Crochet  Department Logo Crocheting is a lovely needlework art that has a wide variety of stitches you can use to create many things. In the Crochet department, you can learn different crochet stitches and techniques—including broomstick lace, filet and hairpin lace—as well as get a plethora of project ideas and free samples. Our own Youtube videos will show you different stitches and give you project ideas. To help you with this craft, we feature a yarn calculator and a link to handy conversion charts (such as U.S. to English, steel hook and thread and yarn sizes). In addition, our online shopping center allows you to order your yarns, hooks, patterns and other crocheting supplies easily and quickly.
