Beginners Crochet

This is a 2 week course perfect for crochet beginners, or those who have come to our crochet taster workshop.

In this course, we will teach you the most commonly used crochet stitches, show you how to begin and finish a piece of crochet and talk about colour choices of yarns. You will learn how to read a crochet pattern, how to make granny squares (which can be put together to make a cushion cover or blanket) and become more confident at selecting crochet projects to move on.

Included in the price of this course is a crochet hook and ball of yarn in the colour of your choice, a book of instructions, and any patterns you use.

If you have attended this course already, or have some experience of crocheting, you are very welcome to come and we will develop your crocheting skills further with more complex pattern reading, crocheting in the round and learning more complex stitches. Just mention at the time of booking if you would like to be stretched further!
