2-part Crochet for Beginners, Saturday 8th & Saturday 15th August, 10.30-12.30
With Denise from the Natural Yarn Barn
Crochet has been proven to have therapeutic and stress relieving benefits so why not master all the basics in this 2-part complete beginners course (no previous experience necessary).
Over the 2 weeks you will learn how to get to grips with the hook and yarn, work the foundation chain, doublecrochet, treble crochet, turning chain, simple pattern reading and basic finishing techniques. At the end of the course you’ll take away some small, fun items that you will have made.
Week 1 – you’ll learn about different types of yarn and hooks before trying out the basic stitches of the foundation chain and double crochet. You’ll make a small square coaster to get you going.
Week 2 – focusing on treble crochet, you’ll learn this popular stitch which forms the basis of many patterns, practising by making a traditional ‘granny’ square.
Full written instructions each week will be given out to each participant to take home.
CLASS SIZE: 8 max – small group sessions enable you to have maximum support in developing your skills
