On behalf of the master of the Hook-tell the children the story of the emergence of crochet.
"A very long time on the beach in a small village there lived fishermen. They were poor, because catching fish with a fork, and that's the way they fished, it was hard to catch a lot of fish was difficult. They began to think, what can I do to catch more fish. I thought and thought and came up with: I collected all the ropes that were found in the village, tied them, and got something very similar to mesh, but to catch a fish this grid does not work. Really big holes-cells in the net. Then one of the fishermen, the old and wise, cut with a knife from a bone wand and tried to use it with mesh netting. The mesh is very dense, and none of the fish from it has not slipped.
Since the world has emerged one of the most ancient of crafts - crochet. It is a smooth stick, which wove a network of old fisherman, was nothing but a first bone hook, invented by man (show the hook). For convenience, one end of the sticks were bent. Knitting at first, only men did. In addition to fishing they were herding goats, sheep, camels, sheared the wool, spun the thread, wove warm scarves, blankets bone hook. Later to crochet are women, but they wove clothes and used the yarn, which is made not only from wool, but also from the fibers of plants, and hooks carved from wood. So there were wooden hooks (show). And only when people learned to smelt metal, has a metallic hook, very durable and comfortable (show)".
