  1. Hi Kate, I just ran across your site today and have thoroughly enjoyed visiting. I was searching for information however that I couldn’t find and maybe you can help me… I”ve been seeing these really cute small plants, flowers, etc. on pinterest lately. One of clovers caught my eye, then I noticed miniture roses, or daisy’s, etc. Very tiny, but there is no link from any of these that shows the techniques or even what kind of crochet they are called. Is there a name for that type of crochet that you know of, or poss. it is reg. crochet only with very thin yarn? I would love to find a book or site that gives some tutorials if you happen to know of any. Thanks in advance.
