WeCrochet Podcast Episode 35 – Prime Time Crochet
In this episode of the WeCrochet Podcast, we’re talking about all things TV plus crochet! In this golden age of on-demand content, TV and crochet go together like Laverne and Shirley (or Abbi and Ilana of Broad City).

First Sara, Katelyn, and Heather chat about what they’ve been watching while they crochet. Between true crime, comedies, or even documentaries, there’s a great TV show to suit any crocheter.

Next, Heather and Katelyn talk about the patterns of Issue 6 of WeCrochet Magazine. The Retro Reverb collection features vintage tech-inspired motifs like mixtapes, records, and TVs, while the Mindful Makes collection is all about neutral colors and calming stitches.

Finally, Producer Sarah joins Heather to nerd out about famous crocheters, theories about crochet on TV (*Back to the Future, 1985, spoilers included*), the most famous afghans in pop culture, and the origins of Fuller House character Kimmy Gibler’s funky crocheted scarves. Get cozy on your favorite lounging chair to go through decades of crochet in TV shows and find out where you can find crochet in your favorite shows.

    A crochet project that I’ve seen semi-recently on TV was Rebecca’s jacket on This Is Us! I believe it was last year.
