I listen to people crocheting on the radio.
Or, to be more specific, to experts and enthusiasts talking about crochet in podcasts via various streaming services (although sometimes I do literally listen through my car radio speakers while my phone is hooked up to the entertainment system).
Crochet podcasts give you something to listen to while your hands and eyes are busy with your yarn and hook, but just as importantly are a fabulous way to expand your crochet horizons. Read on to discover some podcasts that I have found to be truly entertaining and enlightening.
Give a listen while you are working on your next project!
The Best All-around Crochet Podcasts
The Crochet Circle
By Fay Dashper-Hughes of Provenance Craft.
The Crochet Circle ran from 2016 to 2022. It was the very first crochet podcast I found years ago when I was searching for programs on the topic! Fay’s podcast is a feast of all things crochet. The podcast aims for:
“…Providing an insight into the industry side of crochet including interviews with farmers, rearers, spinners, hand dyers, manufacturers, designers, pattern checkers, test crocheters and knitters. Sharing tips and tricks to improve and simplify crochet.”
The BHooked podcast by Brittany of BHooked Crochet ran from 2017 to 2019. There are 144 episodes covering everything from beginning crochet and improving your skills to designing and building a business, plus interviews with crochet makers and experts.
A super fun and informative show by the crew at WeCrochet. A podcast “for all things crochet…Featuring interviews, crochet life hacks, live yarn squishing, talk about patterns, design, techniques- all that and more! “

Great Fiber Arts Podcasts
You might be interested in some other podcasts that cover not just crochet, but all kinds of fiber arts. They make for fascinating listening.
This podcast from Interweave and host Allison Korleski “…brings you stories from all corners of the yarniverse. From Victorian murder mysteries to the trenches of the Western Front, from deadly dyes to futuristic fabric, each episode explores the connections between fiber, history, and humanity.” Crocheters may especially enjoy the episode “The Crochet Coral Reef”.

The Long Thread
The Long Thread truly expands the horizons of the fiber arts, with interviews with all kinds of spinners, weavers, and other fiber artists. I particularly enjoyed the episode “Wormspit”, about raising silkworms!

Although this podcast is dedicated to knitting, the interviews with hand knitting designers give a fantastic view into the creative process of designing. From Vogue Knitting.
