I usually sit on the couch...I am short, and sometimes a small pillow behind my lower back is helpful. However, I rarely get to sit for very long, so I crochet a few sts, and then jump up to help a kid...I might find that I need something different if I actually got to sit for a longer period of time. However, it would be easier to 'test drive' pillows on chairs you already own, so you could experiment with what you have at home.

I use a comfortable recliner. I have a bad back and sometimes even have to sleep in the recliner for it not to hurt bad. It is really cushioned in back so you can lean back on it and not be leaning forward all the time. One warning, don't get one from Big Lots. They will only last about a year.

What makes a good chair for hours of crocheting (or knitting)?

Background: I ask the question because it turns out I am in need of a comfortable crochet chair, but I do not know what to look for without pulling out the yarn and needle and test driving it for a few days. With the pandemic, I am working from home and had to setup a makeshift office which is nothing more than a card table with a folding chair. I started having trouble with my running, particularly my lower back. Now it hurts all the time. I'm not the quickest learner, but eventually I came to the conclusion that it is sitting in the folding chair for hours and hours in front of the laptop (probably hunched over) that has caused this pain. Now I try to get up more frequently and check my posture when I think about it.

Anyway, just looking for any advice on what you all consider when choosing a comfortable crocheting/knitting chair. Thanks in advance and happy stitching.
