I love that the Japanese use the same Kanji for crochet and knitting. And you will often find Japanese knitting magazines, and stitchery books have both crafts. These two lovely techniques playing with sticks and string should be considered compatible - like two sides of the same coin! We have long embraced crochet but are happier to have more and more people interested and more partners at HOKC willing to teach! If you are already a knitter but want to explore crochet – try our online beginning crochet classes - give it a try! Buy crochet supplies online and begin working on your crocheting techniques. If you knit or crochet already, you can join the Fiber Arts Nights together live on Zoom or Thursday Lunch Chat, where you can talk about new knitting/crochet techniques and new yarns.
