First I wanted to know what the word technique actually means
- The practical aspects of a given art, occupation etc.; formal requirements.
- Practical ability in some given field or practice, often as opposed to creativity or imaginative skill.
- a method of achieving something or carrying something out, especially one requiring some skill or knowledge.
So when someone asks about my favourite technique I think we are asking about, the second or third of these – practical ability and knowledge.
Is a technique a stitch, or combination of stitches? Is it when you use a different tool to crochet?
