Crochet is similar to knitting or lace-making because it's also a needlework craft. Instead of knitting needles, it uses a crochet hook as its main tool along with some sort of fiber to make the product. Usually, crafters use crochet thread or yarn. However, it's possible to crochet with a variety of different materials, including fabric remnants and twine.

Both crocheting and knitting use a lot of yarn, and both can be used to make similar projects. For example, blankets can be either knitted or crocheted. However, a knitted blanket will look and feel very different when compared to a crocheted blanket. And it's easier to learn to crochet and quickly build up enough skills so that larger projects can be completed. Once you learn a few of the basic stitches, which include the chain stitch and the slip stitch, you can start working on projects.

Crochet lends itself very well to a wide variety of projects, including home décor items. Everything from curtains to rugs, blankets, plant hangers, and wall hangings can be made using crochet techniques. And crochet projects don't just work with one kind of design style: You'll find crochet patterns in styles from modern to rustic.
