THE NEW AGE OF THE CROCHETING

The new age of the crocheting has arrived.
Very originally was crocheting very fine handicraft art. Until the last century women crocheted mainly only lace collars, curtains, tablecloths, lace gloves etc.
Last decades there has been changes. More bulkyer and chunkyer yarns are used and therefore also more all kind of different accessories crocheted. Hats, scarves, pullovers, dresses, bags, home decors, toys, even jewelry. Crochet hooks you can find size 0,75 until 35 and more.

Lately crocheting has made one more big step - oversized/ XXL/ extreme bulky/ 3D - crochet. There comes also an expression arm/ hand crocheting. As material are jersey bands, jersey tubes, merinowool or felted merinowool used.
These carpets, blankets and pillows look extraordinary, very different, you can even not really believe that they are crocheted...

This is also the topic of my blog! While I am so facinated about it. I have tried out this kind of crocheting also myself:
I Oversized my Basket
Walking Barefoot over the Carpet
Something Fresh for Spring in light Tourquise
My Little Blue Cloud
Yesterday a light pink rug or rather pillow was ready. It is quit high and very soft. It's great on the floor as floor pillow/ mat to sit on or on the sofa to relax and lean on it...
