  1. My mother taught me to crochet when I was in my early 20’s, I was obsessed with making baby blankets. My mom was amazing with sewing, knitting,crocheting. I’m trying to follow in her footsteps but don’t think I’ll ever be as good as her.

  2. I learned to crochet when I was in my 20’s , I made every one in my family a afgan either knitted or crocheted. Now I crochet purses , hats and knit sweaters and socks.

  3. Those crochet hooks look like fun! I learned to crochet when I was 8 years old from my grandma on my dad’s side. My grandma from my mom’s side taught me to knit. My immediate family was not crafty, but my grandma’s were.

  4. I learned to crochet when I was in my 30’s. My Mom knit and crocheted, but she did it so fast, it was hard for me to learn from her. I was pretty much self-taught. I like to knit better than crochet, though.

  5. My grandmother taught me how to embroider and crochet when I was approximately 6 years old. When I was 15, I learned to knit and was surprised to find out that my mom also knew how to knit. She was quite crafty and exceedingly creative. I have just started knitting again, 50 years after my start, and I’m also doing some crocheting.

  6. I started formal knitting and crocheting when I was 7 years old during our Home Economics class in Germany. I watch my maternal grandmother knit and crochet slippers, cushions, and varied other household items. When we immigrated to Canada, I lost my interest in knitting and crocheting as there was no one to show me how to read patterns in English. I did crochet some afghans for my siblings and my mother in my 20s. Then life happened and I never got back to “it” . Now 40 years later, I picked up knitting about a year ago; took some lessons at my local yarn store and found your site. What a blessing!! This year in April my mother passed away shortly before her 90th birthday. About a month prior to her passing she told me, during one of our weekly telephone conversations, what a comfort the afghan had been to her on the nights she felt chilled, “It was the perfect size” she said. I was so touched that she had kept it all this time and was still using it. (she lived 3,000 km away). This started me thinking of expanding my yarn art to include crocheting again and even started looking for hooks. Thank you for letting me share my memory road. 🙂

  7. I learned to crochet from my Mom when I was 19 or 20. She made beautiful afghans for the family. The funny thing is that my youngest sister taught our Mom, she learned in grade school. Shortly after took a knit class and was hooked!!

  8. I learned to crochet when I was about 20 from my future husband’s mother. Once I learned I was hooked for sure and haven’t stopped crocheting for 37 years. My daughter is 25 and I’m trying to get her “hooked” too 🙂
    Thank you for the chance to win the Knitter’s Pride Waves Crochet Hook Set it looks awesome; can only imagine how much longer I’ll be able to crochet with these comfortable looking hooks!

  9. I learned in my 20s. I bought a book and supplies and taught myself. Only my grandmother crocheted, but she was so fast that I never caught on with her. Now I’ve taught my daughter at age 10. She loves it and has taught 2 friends and a cousin (all under age 10). My daughter is actually teaching my mom to crochet.

  10. I learned to crochet at 10-12. My mother did a lot of sewing and crocheting so yes I would say I come from a crafty family.

  11. I learned to crochet when I couldn’t figure out knitting
    It was several years before I went back to knitting, now I love doing

  12. I learned to crochet about a year ago. One of my favorite things to crochet are stuffed animals to give as gifts to my nieces and nephews, but currently I am working on a small blanket. No one in my family is artsy, but I have found knitting and crocheting to be very relaxing and fulfilling.

  13. Hello! I learn to crochet when i was 11 to 11 1/2 and actually got my first project from here!!! (By the way, I’m 12 now). Yes, I do come from a crafty family my grandmother sews and cross stiches, my mom sews, knits, and weaves.

  14. I learned to crochet from my sister when I was very young. I did it for about a learning only one stitch. Six years ago I decided I wanted to pick it up again and learn how to read a pattern. I have not looked back; I really enjoy it. I come from a family of crafty people.

  15. I started knitting when I was 11 years old. I learned my my Italian Grandmother who raised us.

  16. My friend taught me how to crochet when I was 17 and I learned to knit from youtube videos. My mother sews, in fact, she made my prom dress and many of my clothes when I was little. Learning to sew will be my next task.

  17. I come from a long line of knitters and still love to knit. My mum taught me basic crochet and I am still learning through books and youtube, it’s been a few years now and i am still learning!
