Origins of Crochet
There are indeed more and more people getting hooked into this hobby. But do you know where this hobby actually started and when?
There are a number of articles released talking about the history of this not-so-easy-to-learn needle craft. But almost all of those do not exactly say when crocheting actually began. It might really be difficult to trace back the roots of this hobby.
However, there are some researches that suggest that crochet must have developed from Chinese needlework and reached Europe in 1700s. But many still believe the possibility of it being started as early as the 1500s.
But no matter when and where crochet started, it is still making its name again in the arts and crafts scene and gaining fame to most people all over the world.
