Workshop: CROCHET IMPROVERS (2.5 hours)
Once you can do the basic stitches, you can learn to work in the round, combining stitches to make motifs of all shapes and sizes. In this class we will learn to crochet a round and a flower motif (more if time permits!). Suitable for beginners with basic stitch knowledge as well as those at intermediate level.
Bring along any motif patterns that you are keen to work on.
Skills covered – pattern & diagram reading, working in the round, base adjustable ring, changing colours plus more stitches. See Calendar for dates.
Please bring along to class: A selection of wool and a suitably sized hook that you are comfortable working with. Alternatively you can purchase these items in store prior to the class (early arrival recommended to ensure class starts promptly).
Prerequisites : have completed crochet basics or know how to chain, slip stitch, double crochet and treble crochet.

"I am a crafty person with multiple interests and love to give new techniques a try. I crochet. I knit. I have also started machine knitting.
I also used to do needlework (cross-stitch, embroidery, tapestry).
I sew. I used to make beaded earrings. I have also done papercraft. As I said I love to try new things.
I love having lots of projects on the go (crochet and knitting) with various skill levels. Which is great for variety but it means I take longer to finish each project."
