The art of crochet is a very relaxing hobby you can do while awaiting the arrival of your new addition. The soothing rhythm of creating stitches can calm even the most frazzled nerves. If you're one of those people [like me], who can't stand to sit idle, crochet is a wonderful way to let your body get some rest and not feel like you're wasting time. You can sit in front of the television with your feet up and create something beautiful and functional without it feeling like work.
Pick up your work whenever you have a spare few minutes. Take your project along with you when you travel. It's a great way to make road trips, train travel, plane rides etc. pass more quickly. You'll have to use plastic hooks if you're using public transport
Lace shawls and Crocheted blankets are some of the most useful gifts a newborn can receive. The blanket can be transferred from pram to cot to floor, or to wrap your bundle of joy in to keep him/her snug and warm. Patterns are many and varied.
From blankets created by joining many motifs together, to those created in one piece, like the blanket in the picture shown here. My blanket pattern is crocheted using 100% nylon 3ply baby yarn. This yarn is easy to care for, very soft, and lends itself very well to hat, blanket and booties patterns. Feel free to vary the color of the yarn to suit a boy or a girl.
Types of Stitches in Embroidery
Embroidery uses different variations of stitches. Each one has a particular name to help identify it. All of them are generally simple to execute; however, when combined together, the results can be unique and complex.
Straight stitch passes through the fabric in a simple up and down motion, in which the needle is brought through the fabric at one end and returned from the wrong side at the opposite end of the stitch. The thread has to be pulled carefully so that it shouldn't pucker or distort the work. Simple satin, Algerian eye, fern, running, or blasting stitch are some popular types of straight stitches.
Chain stitch is the easiest of all the looped stitches, in which the needle is brought through the fabric at one end of the stitch and is inserted back into the fabric at the same point. Then, again the needle is brought back up at the polar end of the stitch. To complete and secure the row, the needle is taken to the wrong side over the loop from where it came through. Lazy daisy, Spanish chain, or zig-zag chain are some examples of the chain stitch.
Cross stitch is done by forming a line of diagonal stitches in one direction by using the wrap and weft of the fabric and while coming back crossing the diagonal in the opposite direction, forming an 'x'. Breton, sprat's head, and herringbone stitch are some of its types.
Back stitch is commonly used to draft an area of a design. It works along one side of a square or diagonally across the square in an encircling motion. It is normally worked on last with a finer thread. Stem, split, and crewel stitch are some of its examples.
