Considering the amount of time you would spend on making one, I am sure your heart would break if it were to get a stain or some such problem. It is recommended that you hand wash your  crochet round tablecloth rather than machine wash it if you want it to retain its shape and sheen. Also, don;t use any harsh detergent but try to use some mild liquid soap whenever you need to wash it. If you prefer, you might like to get your crocheted tablecloth dry cleaned.

Crochet Supplies Online

If you are new to crochet and are ready to start on your beginner crochet projects then you might be looking for crochet materials online in order to get  hooked on crochet. There are quite a few crochet thread suppliers online that deal with a variety of  coats and clark cotton crochet thread, crochet needle sets, crochet kits and plenty of other crochet tools like the circular crochet hooks.

The crochet needles come in a range of  crochet hook sizes and you can buy them in crochet hook sets or even in singles depending on which crocheting yarn you will be working with. The lower the number of the crochet hook the fatter it will be and accordingly you have to use  thicker crochet yarns with it. For finer  cotton crochet thread, you will have to  make use of a  crochet needle that has a higher number. If you buy crochet hook sets then you will have a range of crochet hooks to choose from depending on the various crochet yarn types that you decide to work with. Worth mentioning is the double ended crochet hook which has two sizes in the same crochet needle.

Crochet yarn suppliers sell Red Heart thread, Coats and Clark crochet cotton, Modi as we get here in India, lion brand yarn, silk crochet thread, nylon crochet thread, crochet wool, crochet nylon thread and a whole lot of other kinds of  yarn for crocheting. Crochet thread sizes come in numbers 10,20,40 and so on. As the number increases, the thread gets finer, just like the crochet needles.  

The Boye crochet hooks come in a wide variety to suit various kinds of crochet threads that you might be working with. If you buy the  crochet hooks sets they normally come in a crochet hook case but even if yours do not come in one, you can purchase it separately. Buy crochet hooks sizes varying from 2mm to 10mm and you should be well equipped to take on a variety of  baby crochet projects or any other handmade crochet that you can think of.

The crochet needle sizes that you buy have to match the crochet string that you work with but whether you choose from plastic crochet hooks,  wooden crochet hooks or  steel crochet hooks is entirely up to your individual tastes and preferences. Some people simply prefer the wood crochet hooks that are made from rosewood. You can make use of the afghan crochet hook to work out the baby afghan crochet patterns free and the work that you create will be simply amazing.

If you are just a crochet beginner and are following  basic crochet instructions and you must buy crochet hooks start by buying a single crochet hook to work and to match the cotton crochet yarn till you realize that you would like to continue with the art of crochet. Once you master the art of crochet, you can buy a lot of colors of cotton crochet yarn or crochet cotton thread depending on the beginner crochet projects that you might choose whether it is free patterns crochet clothes for women that you choose or crochet baby layette patterns.

 Besides these crochet accessories that we have already mentioned above, you can also buy a crochet organizer in which to keep all your crochet needles sizes, crocheting thread and other crocheting supplies. The online yarn business is slowly but surely picking up and you will find many a yarn company which has setup shop on the Internet selling cheap yarn crochet at very reasonable prices..

Fort those who would rather not do handmade crochet, there are the crochet machines like the crochet looms. They say the crocheting machine is pretty effective but I haven't tried it out and I would rather stick to handmade crochet.

Free Crochet Swan Pattern

Many years ago, my mother saw a crochet swan doily that someone had made but they told her that they had just done it without having any crochet swan doily pattern to follow. The necks of the swans were just stumps not like the graceful necks in the crochet swan centerpiece that you get today. My mother managed to make the crochet swan without having any crochet swan pattern but everybody really admired it.

When my father's cousin returned from the U.K. after a visit there, she brought my mother a copy of the crochet swan symphony or crochet swansea. It was really beautiful and my mother made and gifted a lot of these although this was not a free crochet swan pattern. Some years back I discovered how to get picasa crochet patterns and at this time I was able to download a swan crochet pattern free and this one had crochet swans with wings.

Learn Crochet Stitches

Crochet is a process in which a kind of cloth is shaped by making use of yarn or thread and a crochet hook. Crochet is very much like knitting as in both loops of yarn are drawn through more loops. The sole difference is that only one loop is utilized at a given point in time and a crochet hook is utilized in place of the knitting needles. Crochet has been around for a lot many years and an increasingly large number of designs are shaped through experimenting over time. Today, crochet is utilized to make items of clothing, scarves, blankets, home decoration and bikinis even.

Crochet is extremely easy to learn and there are many differences as compared to the main techniques. These crochet stitches are made on a string of loops known as chains. The stitches can be worked unaccompanied or combined to shape designs. The chief stitches in crochet are:
1. Chain - string of loops
2. Slip stitch
3. Single crochet
4. Half-double crochet
5. Double crochet
6. Treble
7. Double treble
8. Triple treble
If you want to learn how to crochet, the materials you will need are a Crochet hook
and some Crochet yarn or crochet thread like knitting cotton, mercer crochet or various thicknesses of wool depending on what project you are making.

Crochet instructions:

1. Hold the crochet hook flanked between your thumb and your index finger like you are holding a pen or a pencil making sure that your thumb rests on the flat portion on the crochet needle.
2. Now create a crochet chain. To create this, create a slip-knot surrounding the crochet hook. Wrap the thread surrounding the hook and draw it through the loop you shaped in the knot. The thread is now wrapped around the crochet hook.
3. Draw one more loop through that loop and do it again until you have shaped many loops and are able to hold the thread fairly firm, not too loose and not too tight.
4. Next try your hand at single crochet. To create this, hold the chain and put the crochet hook into the second chain from the crochet hook.
5. Bring the thread over the crochet hook like you did when you were creating the chain and pull it through the chain that you put the crochet hook into. You should now have two loops on your hook.
6. Wrap the thread around the hook and pull it through the two loops on the crochet hook to make the single crochet.
7. To make the following stitch, put the crochet hook once more, this time into the subsequent chain on the row of chains and repeat the precise instructions at steps 5 and 6.
8. Repeat until you arrive at the end of the row where you must now shape a chain so as to start row 2. This chain is known as the turning chain.
9. Turn your work done so far so that the row you just finished is facing you. Put the crochet hook below the two top loops closest to it.
10. Thread over and draw the loop through to create two loops on the hook.
11. Bring the thread over the crochet hook and draw through once more. Repeat till you have reached the end of the row and repeat till you are confident with this stitch and are ready to go on to a variety of other crochet stitches.
