So I have started fooling around with crochet, and right now I am making an extremely experimental scarf. It is made with very fine wool lace yarn (?) that I found in a thrift store and a large crochet hook. So basically it is a very light and fine and airy product. I am not pulling it tight, so it is very very loose and loopy. That is not a very good description, but my question is, is there any name for what I am doing? I guess this is silly because there is no real reason for me to know what it is (if it is indeed special) other then to be able to explain what I am doing to people without so many words. Any input would be helpful. Smiley

haha I know what you mean and as far as I know, there is no name for it.  It's just using a larger gauge hook than your yarn calls for.  Hope that helps.

To explain it to quickly to people who ask just tell them your crocheting a lacey scarf.  Simple and to the point without going into many details. Grin

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
