How to hold the crochet hook

  • It is in the same posture of holding a pen, support it with the middle finger of the dominant hand and hold it with your index and thumb.
  • Then holding the thread in your hand.
  •  It has the vital role of maintaining the tension of the yarn to make it easier to crochet.
  • Thread the thread between the little finger and the ring finger.
  • And through the palm, between the middle finger and the index finger.
  • Hold the hand and grasp the thread with your middle finger and thumb.
  • Pass the tread between your fingers, and you can keep moderate tension.

The benefit of crocheting

  • Crocheting and Insomnia. A study by Professor Herbert Benson of the Mind / Body Medical Institute found that 100% of patients with insomnia found an improvement in sleep by 90% by being able to eliminate the medication in a program that included crocheting. Focusing on repetitive activity calms and relaxes enough to make you more likely to fall asleep.
  •  Relaxation reduces irritability and restlessness. This activity can be helpful in times of stress, bad mood, frustration and boredom, a positive way out to keep a balanced state of mind.
  • Crafting as prayer. Prayer has been shown to have a wide range of health benefits, crocheting and crocheting can also be used as part of this process. See related articles.
  • Crafts with threads invite social relationships. No matter what health problem you have, these activities help to have a supportive community around you: through meetings in local and public places, in fairs and events in the sector, informally through connections in the stores, in virtual artisan communities, through generations.
  • Help in grieving processes. During periods of deep pain, it may seem impossible that you can return to certain normality and resume your routine. Crocheting and crochet can be a comforting aid during this period, something that can be done without much effort, in small doses and thus be able to momentarily disconnect from that deep pain. The textures and colors of the yarns, the warmth of the wool and the repetitive movements that are practiced can achieve a relaxed harmony that makes you feel good again.
  • Anti-stress effect. Stress is one of the main health problems today. The effects range from migraine and fatigue to heart failure and early memory loss. Reducing stress reduces illness. Crocheting or crocheting, as well as meditation, can be a daily way to minimize the effects of stress in life.
