Little is known about the beginning of the crocheting history. It seems likely that the first crochet was done with your fingers instead of the hooks usedtoday. There are theories that crochetcould have existed as soon as 1500 BC as part of the nun’s work, which included embroidered income and bilro income.
There are three main theories for the origin of crocheting. Some believe that it originated in Arabia and spread eastward to Tibet and then west to Spain, finally following Arab trade routes to other Mediterranean countries.
Alternatively, it is believed to have originated in South America, where a primitive tribe wore crochet adornments in puberty rites. Another alternative stems from the fact that in China the first examples of dolls worked in crocheting were known.
However, there is no solid evidence of how old crocheting is or where it originated from. The evidence of its appearance in the sixteenth century is mild and heatedly contested. There are references to a type of chain ornament made around 1580. However, it seems to have been a type of rope, sewn into fabric like an ornamental braid.
During the Renaissance, women crocheted several threads of thread producing lace-like fabrics.
The oldest evidence of crochet, as we know it, is commonly seen for the first time in the second half of the 18th century.

The main theory behind the origin of crocheting seems to be that it started when it was realized that the chains worked on a pattern would stick together without background fabric. In the late 18th century, the drum evolved into what the French called air-to-air crocheting, when the background fabric was discarded and the stitching worked on its own. The drum hooks were thin as sewing needles and therefore the work should be done with very fine thread.
Crochet began to emerge in Europe in the early 19th century, driven by Mlle Riego de la Branchardiere, known for her ability to pick up needle and bilro lace designs and turn them into crochet patterns that could be duplicated. She has published several patterns and also claimed to have invented lace type crochet, now called Irish crochet.
A type of income called cheyne lace was made with a late 18th-century hook and a primitive form of crochet called pjonting can be found in about 1820.
