knitted with crochet

About the material

Textile technique that intertwines different gauges and types of thread with the help of a hook that can be made of metal, wood or plastic. This technique is also known as crochet or crochet, a French word for hook. To carry out this technique, the artisans require any vegetable or animal filament, that is, they can use wool, cotton, ixtle, yarn, etc. Once you have the hook and the filament, you begin to weave to reach a desired size and shape, joining several canvases or making just one.


At Ensamble Artesano we work with artisan groups that are dedicated to the preservation of this technique in the states of Querétaro and Hidalgo.

Thanks to the allied organizations that strengthen the artisan groups of crochet fabric in Ensamble Artesano
