Crochet!;Jul2007, Vol. 20 Issue 4, p98
The article discusses several historical moments related to crocheting. On February 12, 1663, the crochet before chores work ethic was introduced by Maggie Greene when she decided to make a scarf. She realized she needed a scarf while she was feeding the cows in a snowstorm. Designer yarns are born when Amelia Forrest decided to use the dog's fur on August 21, 1784. A ship lost its way in 1922 when a passenger drops her crochet project overboard causing the yarn to get tangled in the rudder.
