Wow, that was fast turn around!
A lovely person from the Merriam Webster company did contact me, and I’m sure you got replied to as well. I found the definition here in a list of definitions http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/crochet ! Check it out, there’s some cool stuff on that page.
The very poor definition, however is from a Merriam Webster Dictionary, but it’s an older definition, hopefully that is now changed, or will be in the future.
Just our luck someone at the Dictionary is a crochet enthusiast too! YAY!
They got a lot of emails folks! Well done! Let’s see what else we can do…hmmmmm…
