The Ten Crochet Commandments



You shall crochet whatever makes you happy, regardless of what other people say. Be that a crochet dinosaur or a crochet pencil topper…the only goal is happiness.

You shall take every opportunity to teach others about the craft. Whether they want to learn or not.

You shall have yarn. A hell of a lot of yarn.

You shall sacrifice clothing, objects and furniture (and men if necessary) to find a space to put said yarn. And you shall proudly call it a STASH.

You shall spend many happy hours drooling and sighing over other people’s crochet masterpieces, knowing if you tried that particular pattern or technique, it just wouldn’t look the same.

You shall crochet on every mode of transport where you are not actively driving / piloting / navigating.

You shall understand this: time stands still for no one who crochets. So get a move on and finish that WIP.

You shall not mind the crochet fails. They happen from time to time. Take it as a lesson learned and try again. You shall not give up or give in!

You shall subtly let other people see how amazing your crochet makes are…without being too obvious of course.

You shall share the love. Make gifts for friends and family. Make items for charities and local people. Make something for your neighbour or a colleague. Share. Share. Share.


Simple really aren’t they?
