A special poncho for HOOK CROCHET

Here’s a sneak peak at a prototype poncho in corded grey mercerised cotton. It hangs beautifully because there’s a satisying weight to it. It will be a very special garment, for day or evening. A little bit of edging and it will be complete.

What is true luxury? I think it’s something made with great care and love, by hand.img_7222

HOOK CROCHET is Jenny Caron Hall’s new company, for crochet bedspreads, baby blankets, wall hangings and elegant contemporary garments. They’re made entirely by hand using traditional crochet stitches to contemporary design.

Crochet is one of the oldest art forms, and can be traced back to ‘Nålbinding’.  The oldest known textile fragment of Nålbinding dating from c. 6500 BCE was found in Nehal Hemar cave, Israel. Another from the Ertebølle period c. 4200 BCE was found in ‘Tybrind Vig’, a Mesolithic fishing village in Denmark.
