Introduction to Crochet
Saturday 29 August
Saturday 29 August 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$65.00
Whip up a blanket!
Are you yarning to learn something new? (Pun intended). Something to potter away at while sitting in the corner of the couch with a cuppa?
This workshop will be held in our studio, and due to COVID restrictions we have restricted the number of attendees. We will also ask you to observe our COVID-safe guidelines.
Join us as we teach the basics of crochet – learn to chain stitch and double crochet and then how to combine these to make a gorgeous blanket!
This easy pattern is fun, easy and comes together quickly! Keep it simple with one colour block or mix it up by combining your favourite colours.
This pattern is a great introduction to crochet and can be used for more than just blankets… think face washers, dish cloths, scarves and more!
What the workshop covers:
- Crochet 101 – holding the hook, holding the yarn, tension, counting stitches
- Basic stitches – chain stitch and double crochet stitch
- Changing colours
