Talk Like a Pirate: The Crochet Edition

No matter what you crochet, you can make it a fun silly day by speaking pirate while you craft. Some suggestions:“Ahoy matey!” This is a good pirate hello greeting to say when you arrive at your crochet meetup.

  • Use your crochet to flirt: “Avast, me proud beauty. Do ye like my hook?”
  • “I must frog this smartly.” Smartly means quickly in pirate speak.
  • “Shiver me timbers” is a good response when someone shows you their craft work.
  • “Arr!” A useful, versatile pirate sound.

And make sure you stop calling it your stash and start calling it your booty!
