The Story

Knitted Victorian Garden!

The end of the Victorian era brought a change in crochet fashions. 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, and most of them were simplified versions of the early 20th-century patterns.

After a small decline in popularity, crocheting and other handcrafts picked up pace in the early 21st century with a change in patterns and use of bright colours, crochet has seen a revival of interest in handcrafts and DIY, as well as great strides in improvement of the quality and varieties of yarn. It was a common practice for groups of people to crochet clothing and other garments in groups and to pass the trade from one generation to the next.
