Their rugged boats were battered by harsh seas as day after grueling day stoic seamen hauled nets heavy with herring, cod, or tuna. Their struggle birthed the classic Fisherman crochet that kept them warm and dry. It wrapped them in the promise of hearth and home and the loving arms of family ashore.

This then was the inspiration that created the very same Fisherman crochet that we’ve come to treasure as a symbol of our historic past. Today it is still as warm and comforting and, yes, as beautiful as 200 years ago! Smart, stylish, yet still as useful as it was in the beginning.

Each of our designs is handmade from Red Heart yarns, a brand as sturdy as those long-ago fishermen. These are the classic aran, but 100% acrylic, so they are hypoallergenic. Machine washable and dryable.

Exclusively available on eBay, where we’ve been a member since 2001.
