Crochet Quote: Making a garment special

Today’s crochet quote about embellishing is by Nicky Epstein. It comes from the foreword she wrote for Cari Clement’s book titled Embellished Crochet: Bead, Embroider, Fringe, and More.

“While many crocheters can use the same basic stitch pattern to make a garment, adding a touch of embellishing can change a garment’s look dramatically and beautifully. It’s the addition of just a few beads, some embroidery touches, a tassel, beaded fringe – simple and easy techniques – that make the garment special.”

Do you embellish your crochet work with extras or keep it more basic?
