Crochet Quote: Knitters take up crochet

Today’s crochet quote comes from an old crochet book that dates back to the time when crochet was just shifting from being a thread-only craft to a yarn-based craft. Mary M. Dawson writes in the introduction to A Complete Guide to Crochet Stitches Crochet Quote: Knitters take up crochet.

“Until recent years … knitting books only called for crochet as edgings around the neck and cuffs of knitted garments. Many experienced knitters never attempted crochet at all and the two crafts were considered as different as the materials they required. That is not the case today.”

Do you think it’s true that the shift towards using yarn in crochet made it a more appealing craft for knitters to try?
