Modern Crochet is a magazine that appears in the episodes "Karate Star," "InSPONGEiac," and "Lost in Bikini Bottom." It is one of the many magazines Squidward reads while slacking off at the Krusty Krab.


The magazine's cover is yellow in color. At the bottom, a knitting action can be seen, specifically a blue bowl with purple-colored yarn in it. Above the knitting, the magazine's title is shown in big purple letters.

It is about crochet, hence the title and cover. Like other magazines, Squidward enjoys reading this.
