This paper presents a study that explores the computability of the craft of crochet. The study involves two consecutive stages: an analytical and systematic approach to crocheting three-dimensional objects to discover the underlying computational aspects, and a formal representation of the deducted computational logic in the form of a computer algorithm. The aim is to explore the computability of hands-on making processes where computation extends beyond the use of computers and digital tools to spatial reasoning in general.
