Crochet Design & You

Crochet is trendy and creative and calming

We have had many emails informing us that crochet has kept them calm and sane when they have been enforced to stay at home longer than usual. It has meant that more people have discovered the benefits of crochet in a way that has never been explored in the past. There are numerous wonderful levels of enjoyment and satisfaction which sceptical people never thought they would find. Persons are openly admitting they are finding crochet to be a stress reliever. For instance:

  • The rhythm of moving the crochet hook in a repetitive way is soothing to the body when it has been over active
  • Focusing on colour, texture, and design is perfect for shutting down the mind from routine and stressful situations
  • The reward of seeing someone appreciate receiving something you have made for them, instead of going to a shop and buying it, is wonderful.
