The word crochet is a French word meaning hook.
Crochet is a hand craft with which yarn is looped, using a hook, into a patterned fabric.
Hooks are usually made from materials such as; wood, metal and plastic.
The types of yarn used would be dependent upon the project at hand. The hook size would then of course depend upon the thickness of the yarn.

Adorable Life Like YorkShire
Is there anything any more adorable
How can anyone resist this adorable Yorkie..He or she is the perfect dog.. If you live in an apartment or somewhere, where pets are not allowed then this is the one...
This Yorkie will not need to be taken outside in the middle of the night, you won't need to worry about barking , he won't need a vet or a flea collar, and you won't need to spend a fortune on food., He does require lots petting, hugs, love and kisses.
Warning: If you make this Yorkie you can be sure that everyone who see's it will be begging you to make one for them.
The pattern is free from amirugumi crochet: Adorable Life Like Yorkshire
This Stripy as well as colorful snake is sure to please any child. What a great way to use up bits of leftover yarn, However I am sure Stripy the Snake would look adorable in a solid color as well. He would also look great when using a self striping or patterned yarn.
Margarita looks delicate and demure but don’t be mistaken, she is a doll that is waiting for any type of play you can imagine.
Her petals and wings are sewn securely to her little body, while her hair is embroidered into a bob style, cute and low maintenance. Hopefully this lovely maiden will inspire you to create a garden of flower fairies to love and enjoy!
The Japanese Art Of Amigurumi
In case you didn't know, crocheters and knitters all over the world are going wild for Amigurumi, or Japanese crochet. They're not making afghans or sweaters; rather, they're making cute, colorful little animals, flowers and dolls. The words here are "cute" and "little." When the project is finished, many Amigurumi patterns will reward you with a sweet little toy that will fit neatly in the palm of your hand.
Crochet Amigurumi are made from yarn and constructed mainly using the single crochet stitch. Amigurumi are worked in sections and then joined. Some are worked in one piece however, using spiral rounds.The crochet hooks are slightly smaller than would be used in your typical project. This is to insure a tighter gauge to retain the stuffing and to make sure the stuffing is not visible on the outside of the Amigurumi that you have spent time making.
