I thought I would explore the crochet programs in prisons in one state to show the range of different programs that exist. I chose the state of Ohio. Here are the prison crochet programs I found:

A group of male inmates at Folsom State Prison has made their very first donation of knit and crochet items to a shelter for women and children.


There are a surprising number of crochet programs for inmates and one of those is located at the Saginaw Correctional Facility. The forty men that make up the group recently made sweaters to participate in the Mister Rogers’ Sweater Contest. However, they also crochet for charity.


Crochet benefits people in many ways and is used in prisons to help achieve those benefits.


Politician Chuck Turner has been convicted of accepting kickbacks and will be spending the next three years in prison. Will he spend his time crocheting?
