There are many reasons why a person might want to crochet without yarn.
- Yarn purchases can be expensive; for someone who is out of work or without much (or any) disposable income, yarn might be more of a luxury than a necessity. It's natural to want to find inexpensive, or free, alternatives.
- In some areas, it's challenging to find reasonably-priced yarn at the store; it comes down to a choice between driving a long distance to buy yarn, buying yarn through the mail unseen -- and paying shipping costs, finding some other alternative to yarn, or abandoning crochet all together.
- Some people like a creative challenge.
- Sometimes people might want to try something new, different or interesting.
