My love for art, craft and all things DIY came from my Dad who is a DIY enthusiast himself! But knitting may be the only craft he didn't pursue (pretty sure he can if he tries!).
Enter my friendly neighbourhood aunty who gifted my a crochet phone cover one fine day, and it was exquisite! No, no, not a mobile cover, a landline cover (back when I was a wee baby in school)! I hounded her to teach me how to replicate that beautiful cover and thus began my crochet journey!
Crochet is a popular handicraft that involves using a crochet hook and yarn to create fabric from a series of loops. It is a versatile craft that can be used to create a wide range of items, including blankets, scarves, hats, and even clothing.
One of the benefits of crochet is that it is a portable craft. All you need is a crochet hook, yarn, and a pattern, and you can crochet almost anywhere. It is a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend your downtime, and many people find it to be a therapeutic hobby (including me!).
Learning to crochet is easy with the abundance of tutorials and patterns available online. Many people find that it is a great way to improve their dexterity and hand-eye coordination, and it can even help reduce stress and anxiety.
Overall, crochet is a wonderful craft that offers a range of benefits and opportunities for creativity. Whether you are a seasoned pro or starting out, there is always something new to learn and create!
