"There are different patterns and techniques with crocheting. It is mainly used for a thinner, tight-knit look."

When asked how long it would take to crochet a dress, the Mr Price New Talent Search 2024 (ladieswear) competition winner said:

"It would take between two weeks to a month or even longer to complete, depending on the detail and how fast one works. Crocheting would work much better than a hand-knitted dress because of the different types of stitches and patterns used."
