The Meaning of "Crochet"

"Crochet" is actually a French word that means "hook". To crochet means to create fabric or needlework through the process of interlocking loops with a hooked needle. It is similar to knitting in that loops of yarn are pulled through other loops, but it differs in that only one loop is active during the making of a stitch and one crochet hook instead of two knitting needles is used.
