It is amazing what can be achieved with just a hook and a ball of yarn.
Crochet is fast and easy and can be made up into a wide variety of textures and looks just by varying your stitches yarns and size of hook. Small and dainty, big and chunky, delicate and lacy or thick and tough. You are also not limited to the number of stitches you can have in a row, so if you feel inclined you could crochet a rug to fit a football pitch without having to sew pieces together!
You can make cables and bobbles and work with multiple colours just like you can with knitting. Crochet is so pretty too. Even plain stitches look delightful. At the same time, take those same stitches and with the right colour of yarn it's just as suitable for men's items
More than just granny squares and blankets, with crochet you can make clothes, accessories toys and gifts. It is easily portable, and unlike knitting it is impossible to drop your stitches.
Have fun. Crochet should not be a chore. I's not just about the end product, it's about the making of it. Sometimes, with a simple pattern it can even be hypnotic and meditative
