Crocheting: Learn to Crochet for Beginners –Discover Where to Find Free Crochet Patterns for Everything from a Crochet Baby Blanket to Crochet Hat Patterns
One of the fastest growing trends today is teenagers learning to crochet. While the word "crochet" used to make you think of grandma sitting in her rocker knitting a baby blanket or baby clothing for some distant relative, this is just simply not the case anymore. Today, millions of teens and young adults everywhere are learning to crochet. And, they are creating some amazing garments and decorative items as well!
Today, there are many crochet books published which are targeted specifically at teens and young adults. These books are flying off the shelves in record numbers. Many of the crochet books today come with some really hip and colorful projects which appeal to teens and young adults. Add to that the amazingly cool yarns and fibers available today, and you have a winning combination.
As the popularity of crochet grows, there are even starting to be after school clubs dedicated to the art of crochet. In these clubs, teens get together and learn new crochet techniques, share ideas, and show off their latest completed projects with each other. While crochet is usually seen as a very solitary craft, joining a crochet club allows you to share your works with others and gain inspiration. Crochet clubs also bring a social aspect to the art of crochet which has never been there in the past.
While teen crochet is the most popular with girls, an amazing number of boys are learning to crochet as well. It is no longer considered taboo for a boy to learn to crochet. And, if he is interested in girls there are plenty of them at the local crochet club. Many a teen romance has started over a crochet hook and yarn. Many boys are making laptop covers and gifts for the special people in their lives. What teen girl wouldn't love to get a handmade item from her boyfriend?
