KNITTED VICTORIAN GARDEN

The Story

The end of the Victorian era brought change to the art of crocheting. Crocheted lace became even more elaborate in texture and stitching. Preference for white or pale-coloured threads increased and strong Victorian colours disappeared after World War I, when far fewer crochet patterns were published. After a small decline in popularity, the art of crocheting picked up pace in the early 21st century with a change in patterns and use of bright colours. Since then, interest in crochets has seen a revival, and is making great strides in design with the improvement in the quality and varieties of yarn.
It was a common practice for groups of women to crochet clothing and other garments to pass the trade from one generation to the next.
Growing up in an environment of women who crocheted and others who adorn their living spaces with the trimming, inspired the artist to express this type of art form through her own perspective and drawn out of warm memories.
