Live, Love, Crochet

June 15, 2022

There are many reasons to learn how to crochet, but one of the things driving a lot of new people to the craft is the fact that it offers a number of health benefits. The tactile pleasure of the yarn, the rhythmic nature of the crochet stitches, the combination of relaxation and focus and the connections it offers with others all combine to create benefits that relieve a variety of conditions.

Crochet offers a positive distraction. The value of this can’t be underestimated in terms of both physical and mental health. Taking your mind off of chronic pain can help it seem like it goes away, adding to the natural pain-relief properties of the craft’s serotonin release. Breaking the ruminating cycles of the mind with crochet adds to the reduction of depression.

You don’t have to have a reason to crochet other than the fact that you enjoy it. Happy to see how our women friends enjoyed doing crochet with us 🙂
