    Hi I am writing an article about the use of crochet umbrella’s in weddings could you tell me when crochet umbrella’s became popular (in weddings) and how popular the making of crochet umbrella’s is? I hope you have the answers for me!

    EliseMooijman That’s a great question!! I actually don’t have any info on the history of crochet umbrellas. I do know that they aren’t among the most popular items to crochet. The first time I did the roundup it was hard to find patterns or even examples of crochet umbrellas but this time was easier so maybe they’re seeing a comeback. I’ll let you know if I find out anything else and I’d love to know more about your article!!

    • I think umbrellas was most popular in the Victorian times. just my thought .
