Thank you for joining me on my crochet journey and for watching my videos. Now most of these crochet tutorials can use standard on the shelf crochet, knitting yarn or thread. The supplies I use most often are from Lion Brand, Red Heart, and Caron yarn. The tools I use are Fiskar and Westcott scissors. Susan Bates Tapestry Needle. Boye Crochet Hooks. The great thing with YouTube is watching video on demand at any time of the day. For those of you with mobile devices, you can crochet at the beach, park or during breaks from work. Some of the video available are hats, scarves, afghans, lace doilies, flowers, baby blankets, shawls, granny squares and stitches. Crochet can be compared to meditation and is a great way to stay focused. Please subscribe for new crochet video on YouTube.

Crochet is a process of creating fabric by interlocking loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials using a crochet hook. The name is taken from the French word "crochet", meaning small hook. These are made of materials such as metal, wood, or plastic and are manufactured commercially and produced in artisan workshops. The salient difference between crochet and knitting, beyond the implements used for their production, is that each stitch in crochet is completed before proceeding with the next one, while knitting keeps a large number of stitches open at a time.

In the textile arts, a stitch is a single turn or loop of thread or yarn. Stitches are the fundamental elements of sewing, knitting, embroidery, crochet, and needle lace-making, whether by hand or machine. A variety of stitches, each with one or more names, are used for specific purposes.

An afghan is a "blanket or wrap of knitted or crocheted wool". It is sometimes also called a "throw".
"An afghan is the knitted or crocheted blanket everyone has seen thrown over the back of a rocking chair or folded at the foot of Grandmother's bed. Afghans are often given as gifts and may become family heirlooms. Many people use an afghan as a throw on a chilly day, as a bedspread, or as decoration for the back of a chair. An afghan also makes a good three-season blanket, adding warmth without a lot of weight."
