EtymologyEdit

From French crochet, from Middle French crochet, from Old French crochet, crokét (curved instrument, hook), diminutive of Old French croc (hook), from Old Frankish *krōk (hook) or from Old Norse krókr (hook, bend, bight), both from Proto-Germanic *krōkaz (hook), from Proto-Indo-European *gerg- (tracery, basket, twist). Cognate with Middle English crōc (crook, hook), Middle Dutch croec, crōc (curl). Compare crotchet. More at crook, crooked.
