When you think of art from the olden days, you often recollect paintings and sculpture. But the fact is in the olden days the art that was practiced was of a more practical bent with fabrics being used and beautiful patterns being created all the time. Women, who did not have the luxury of going to a store to pick up what they wanted, would often experiment on how different types of needlework can make things prettier.
The emphasis was on the creation and use of different kinds of fabric that they all coveted and wanted to work with. One of the things that women worked at in those days was the use of string and wool to create intricate patterns with the help of a knitting needle or a hook like crochet needle.

Women’s apparel: This means not only some bits of crochet to augment a pretty top or dress, though this too can be seen, but some patterns that include the total dress in crochet itself. The pattern then looks intensely delicate and feminine.
