Whip up a blanket in time for winter!
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?
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
