I’ve asked people a few times on sites like Facebook where they’ve seen crochet represented in TV and movies. I’ve also done some research on my own. Here’s a roundup of crochet on the little and big screens:

People Crocheting

It’s not super common to see the characters on a show crochet but it does happen. Here are some examples:

In the TLC reality show “Breaking Amish” there are many, many scenes with Abe’s mom, Mary, where she’s crocheting. In season 2 she teaches some of the kids to crochet.

People Wearing Crochet

Crocheted Items in the Background

It is more common to see crocheted items in the background of shows than to actually see people crocheting and probably even more common than to see people wearing crochet. Crochet blankets are the most common background item. Here are some examples:
