There's no such thing as a crochet machine, so cherish your crocheted gifts!
Is there a crochet machine? this is the site that answers this the best but still not to my satisfaction every nightgown I own has crochet edging along the wrist, button placket, and necklines… All from Karen Nueburger Lanz of Salzburg, & others but maybe these are old fashioned? They are NOT hand-crocheted so I keep wondering how they get this trim on them? I even have 1 nightgown with a ribbon trim with a single crochet loop like picot edging on it… Where do they get this trim? My mother claims they sell it but I've never seen such a trim either… comez_crochet_machine

All That Authenticity May Be Getting Old - NYTimes.com “It’s smart on their part,” she said, referring to the retailers. “They’re trying to let people have that folk-artsy look, but from a place in your local mall, where you can get it.”
