Creating a Crochet Heirloom | The BHooked Podcast Episode 25

What special crochet project do you have in your life?

I bet every single one of us has a special project that comes to mind when we hear the phrase “crochet heirloom”, whether it be something we made or something we received. For me, the act of giving a crochet project is very special to me. It’s how you say “thank you”, “I love you”, “your very special to me” and everything in between. It’s a powerful way to express yourself and your feelings toward the recipient.

Today’s Guest

I had the pleasure of meeting Amy from Yarn Valet at Stitches South a few years ago and we’ve stayed connected ever since. She’s one of the nicest and genuine people I know! I asked Amy to be a guest on the show and when asked, she jumped at the opportunity to talk about crochet heirlooms – how to choose a project, how to choose the yarn and how to care for your precious items. She even shares a few stories with us about some heirlooms that are in her family!

You’ll Learn

  • About Amy and her journey from experienced knitter to new crocheter.
  • The heirloom projects that have been passed down in Amy’s family.
  • What a “crochet heirloom” actually is.
  • Who will benefit from receiving an heirloom.
  • Tips to choosing a project that will last generations.
  • How to pick the right yarn for a project that will stand the test of time.
  • Fiber types to stick to or avoid.
  • How to care for the heirloom projects in your life.

  • Hi Brittany. I’ve made a couple of shawls that I hope might become heirlooms. Both were gifts to friends who were going through some tough times. I wanted to give them something pretty and let them know I was thinking of them.
