Have you seen my 25 lists for crochet inspiration? The idea behind them is to make 25 lists of 25 things each that can help inspire your crochet. I’ve been posting my own lists on the site periodically since that original list came out and now I’m on to the next one – a list of 25 quotes about crochet. If you follow this blog regularly then you know that I post a crochet quote every Monday-Friday afternoon. Here’s a roundup of 25 of my favorites (that have all been featured on the blog before with appropriate links to sources)!

  1. “If I were able to leave you with only one piece of crochet advice, it would be to always have fun. Learn the basics, but then just go crazy with your crafty self!” – Twinkie Chan

  2. “Play around with materials, colors, stitches. Everything is allowed! Crochet is a magnificent adventure that opens the doors to your wildest imagination and creativity.” – Marie-Noelle Bayard

  3. “Crocheting acts as a mental and physical therapy and there are many beautiful things that are created in the process.” – Today’s Crochet World

  4. “My mother taught me many craft and household skills but she never taught me to crochet. For that I have to thank her, as it meant I had to teach myself.” – Pauline Turner

  6. “Learning to overcome frustration can be a major step in this task, but once a person learns the basics, crochet becomes a relaxing activity, with so many variations that there is always something new to learn to keep the activity novel.” – Nicole L. Cipriani

  7. “I know it may sound impressive when I say I’ve crocheted for a good 30+ years; however, part of becoming better is knowing there is always room for growth. I know that while I am good at what I know, there are so many more stitches and techniques that I can learn.” – Crochet with Cris

  8. “Crochet gives me an inner peace that I treasure each and every day.” – Judith Ferrett

  9. “You can crochet with any fine, flexible, continuous material that you can wrap around a crochet hook.” – Kim and Pulvermahker

  10. “Crochet is an accessible art that comes with a license to be prolific”. – Francine Toukou

  11. “A crocheted piece is the lovely manifestation of a thought, expressed through hand, heart, hook, and yarn.” – Francine Toukou (What can I say, she’s highly quotable.)

  12. “Her fingers work steadily, flicking the yarn – a light lavender in some places, nearly plum in others – around a small golden crochet hook and drawing it secure through a loop made a moment before.” - Jaclyn Shambaugh

  13. “Women today want to find ways to relax, but have limited time, and crocheting can be a mental health vitamin that provides that feel good place.” – Alyson Bell, Coats & Clark

  14. “What’s life without a bit of risque crochet?” – Sex on a Stitch

  15. “The joy of crochet is its simplicity: there is only ever one stitch in work and just a few variations of the basic stitches to master, but the possibilities of using and combining those stitches together are endless.” – Erika Knight

  16. “We crochet squares, hats, scarves, and blankets to donate so those in need can feel the warmth and comfort of someone who cares.  We crochet for others before we crochet for ourselves.” – Crochet Blogger Debi Y.

  17. “Quite simply, crochet feeds the human need for balance in our lives. Making something with our hands reflects something basic about ourselves. We want to work hard without losing touch with our creative selves; we want to earn money without losing our souls; and we want to be part of a larger picture of human progression while still maintaining our individuality.” – Vickie Howell

  18. “Once you start pulling loops through loops, why evah stop?” – Vashti Braha
