Where does the word "Crochet" come from?

By: FaveCraft Editors

The word "crochet" comes from the Middle French word croc or croche meaning "hook," which refers to the knitting needle-like tools used to pull loops of yarn through other loops.  Crochet has been thought to have derived from traditional practices in Asia, Arabia, and South America but has only been documented with popularity in Europe during the 1800s.

We here in Germany say "hkeln" from the Word "Haken" . Haken means in English "Hook" . And HKCHEN" is a little Hook. In front of the Needle is a little hook. If I would say it in my words as I understand it would be HOOKING. But we can nit translate 1:1. So we must use our Phantasie. And I like too to learn more. Thank you

Good to know! One can never stop learning. And when it pretains to the craft that one loves to it's even more imparative!
