Crochet has become a major trend not only for many years, but also as a therapeutic activity for those who perform this work that requires a lot of skill and patience.

Passed on from generation to generation, crochet never falls into disuse because it is timeless, and also because it is easy to adapt to the present. If used with creativity, it can warm up in winter, add color and texture to environments, add a personal touch to the contemporary, be part of a more minimalist choice or renew the energy and look of a dull piece of furniture, all without losing that retro andcozy grandma's house.

And it can be added in different ways: through a pretty quilt on the bed, a blanket on the sofa, a colorful pillow, a rustic cushion, charming covers for benches or armchairs, among other options that you can check in our inspiration list below:
