Many people, when hearing the word crochet, instantly conjure the image of an elderly woman sitting in a chair, crochet hook held firmly in arthritic fingers as she concocts another table doily. Some older women truly seem to have a special gift when it comes to crochet, and that's probably due to the fact that it was a skill sent down for generations. Even if the art of crochet is now rarely passed along in families any more, it is a beautiful, peaceful activity.

Today, it is common to find simple crochet patterns added to designs. From home decor to today's fashion, the addition of simple crochet - either as the complete design or as a supplemental touch - can make an item truly unique. Tablecloths and dresses are only some of the items that can be improved by simple crochet patterns.

Thanks to Hollywood, simple crochet is once again surfacing as a fashion statement. Suddenly crochet patterns are hitting the red carpet at movie premiers and awards shows as movie stars make their fashion statements with these classic designs.

While the rest of us might not be able to afford buying from the best designers, we can still partake of this growing trend and wear items that feature crochet patterns. An evening bag made from simple crochet can always add an extra touch of classy elegance. Many clothing designs, formal or casual, feature patterns of crochet.
