Crocet – That's Not How It's Spelled



There are a few hundred google searches per day for the word "crocet" – and in probably 98% of those searches it's a mispelling.

Here are a few possible corrections for the misspelled "crocet":

  • Crochet – creating fabric using a crochet needle. Similar to knitting.
  • Croquet – a game where mallets are used to hit balls through wirey hoop thingies. (I'm sure spudart can find a link to one [or more] of his croquet posts to put in the comments)
  • Davy Crocket – a celebrated 19th-century American folk hero, frontiersman, soldier and politician. Disliked the nickname "Davy" and referred to himself as David. I'm sure he would have dislike the nickname "Davy Crocet" or "Davie Crocet" even more though.

    as someone who searches for croquet almost every week on ebay, I can say that there is a fair number of people posting crochet items but spellling it croquet. It's not so much that it's annoying, but instead it's funny. And THEN there are the auctions where it's a crocheted item depicting a croquet scene. That stuff is pure gold. http://www.flickr.com/photos/spudart/82135998/

    Yes, you are truly the Barry Bonds of the Sparxmind commenting world. I prefer to keep it pure. I'm the Ryne Sandberg of the Sparxmind commenting world. 50 comments based on pure commenting skill with no commenting enhancers. In fact, I will include an actual comment in addition to my comment to your banter about being Barry Bonds: Certainly anyone who wears a crocheted croquet sweater belongs in a certain kind of institution and I'm not talking about a croquet hall of fame.

    Is that a full sweater? The arms look odd. It looks more like a sweater vest over a flower shirt. What is going on?!
