Broadening one’s horizons through crafting can be a worthwhile pursuit. Crafting can serve as a
relaxing pastime and provide an opportunity to learn rewarding skills. Learning to crochet is one way
for men and women to combine creativity and practicality. Crochet is a form of handwork using yarn
and a crochet hook. According to the Crochet Guild of America, there’s no way to know just how
old the art of crochet is. However, crochet expert Annie Potter has said the modern form
of the art originated in the 16th century, primarily in France and England. Others
surmise crocheting traces its origins to Arabia before it spread westward through
various Mediterranean trade routes.
