These past two years have been filled with lockdowns and stay-at-home activities. Some of us might not deal with the situation quite well, so when the pandemic bores you out with lots of free time, there’s not much you can do other than find some fun activities to amuse yourself. You might already be familiar with one of the activities, we all call it DIY or do it yourself. Some buy number paintings and call it the easiest thing to do but many find something else more interesting; like crochet.
Crochet is a process of making textiles by using crochet hooks to lock loops of, for example, yarn and thread. The name ‘crochet’ comes from the French term crochet, which means ‘small hook’. Crochet as a whole outfit was echoed in the era of the fifties, sixties, and seventies. Besides being a fashion trend, there was even a craze for crocheted homeware too! What's unique about crochet is how it remains a craft, making it a very special fashion item, from the way it is made and used.
Many do crochet as a hobby, some even use it as a therapy to boost their serotonin. They found crochet effective for building self-esteem, useful for making good distractions, and as an act of self-expression. It takes patience and tenacity to craft something like crochet, otherwise, you'll never get it done!
Crochet is a fun and relaxing hobby, but these days we’re heading to a new stride, the endemic. Everything starts to return to normal and you can live your previous life by getting out of the house and going about your routine so free time may be a little tight.
Don’t worry, these are our must-have crochet items to perfect your summer look!
