Crochet is an addictive and rewarding activity that will keep you happy for years to come! Karen will teach you all the crochet basics from how to hold your hook and yarn, through chains and a range of crochet stitches, whilst making a variety of skill-building items perfect for beginners.
In our first class we will learn about;
- different categories and weights of yarns
- the importance of tension
- explore and experiment with different ways to hold a crochet hook
- learn our first crochet stitch; a double crochet
- know that in crochet it’s easy to take your work back and start again – relax
Using a double crochet stitch, we will begin with making fingerless mitts.
In our second class, we move on to crocheting a circle and making coasters. We will learn our second crochet stitch; a half treble.
In our final class, we move onto the traditional granny square, learning our third stitch; a treble and will consider the options with our granny square; do we want to make lots of little granny squares or keep going in rounds to make an infinity granny blanket.
By the end of your sessions, you will be able to chain, double crochet, half treble crochet and crochet a treble giving you the foundations to build on in the crochet world.
Throughout the classes, there will be homework. Practising is essential to learning any new skill and will build confidence for returning to your next class.
Free crochet hook and ball of yarn for every student, they will be all you need for the first class. You will get advice on other material requirements in the first class to make sure you have the correct stuff for the second and third classes. Suitable for beginners.
