Wire is an interesting alternative to yarn or crochet thread. It has its challenges to work with, but after you master them, you'll be able to crochet some of the most stunning jewelry imaginable. You also aren't limited to making jewelry. There are many amazing things you can crochet out of wire.

Crocheting With Other Innovative Materials

Rag Ball for Fabric Crochet

People crochet with all kinds of things -- including plastic bags, raffia, and strips of cut-up fabric. If you give it some thought, I bet you could come up with other interesting materials to use. I once crocheted a top out of speaker wire.

Crochet Books and Patterns

These Vintage Crochet Pattern Books Were Published by Novelty Art Studios Prior to 1915.

We offer a wealth of free crochet patterns here at About Crochet, and you are invited to make good use of them. However, if you stick to only using free patterns, you'd miss out on many amazing designs.

We hope you will find these reviews helpful for evaluating some of the crochet publications that are available.
