With fall rapidly descending, out come the autumn decorations. Colorful leaves decorate the tables, Indian corn and pumpkins are placed on the front porch, and greens and oranges pervade every spare bit of space you have. Those who love to do crafts actively get online or troll crafting stores looking for new ideas.
Often, people don't think about crocheting decorations, but the hook-and-yarn craft doesn't have to be used only for clothing and blankets. It can also be put to good use helping to accent the home with truly unique pieces. Because crocheting has so many different stitches, every piece you make, whether it's practical or strictly decorative, can become a decoration through its workmanship and color.
