And the best part of this story is that you can do it yourself, even if you don’t have any experience with the technique. After all, crochet is an art accessible to everyone.
Crochet is very simple in terms of the list of materials needed. That’s because you will basically need yarn and needles. In the case of threads, it is very important to pay attention to the thickness of the thread, in addition, of course, to the softness. Always choose lines suitable for use on babies, as they are hypoallergenic.
If you are new to the technique, the tip is to use only one color and light colors to better see the point and check if everything is right. The needles used in crochet must match the type and thickness of the thread. When in doubt, always consult the thread packaging, as the manufacturer informs the most suitable needle number for that type of thread.
