Crochet – All Abilities

Crochet – All Abilities

Course Details

Crochet is easy to learn and is a relaxing and very enjoyable hobby.

The beginners’ course covers quite a number of stitches. The Tutor will provide a booklet complete with instructions on stitches and various projects to undertake throughout the course.

Initially you will learn how to make a slipknot and chain stitch to commence single crochet and double crochet. 

You will then learn how to crochet a granny square and follow a pattern as well as increasing and decreasing. 

The projects you will undertake will include a hook holder with fan edging as well as a mobile phone cover with a flower.

Improvers will be undertaking advanced work looking at lots of different stitches and how to read both written patterns and pattern diagrams.

We will also look at the best way of starting a ‘magic loop’ which is ideal for hats and amigurumi animals.          

Information & Support

Please bring along a size 4mm crochet hook and some wool for your first project and further advice will be given as to other items you will need to bring as the course progresses.

Beginners please also bring any tiny beads, sewing thread and needle (thin enough to go through the beads) to make a necklace or bracelet using the chain stitch for the first lesson.

 You will be taught by means of practical demonstration and hands on experience and students are encouraged to bring in items they have made at home to show the class and talk about new methods they have learnt themselves.
