Crochet for Beginners
Crochet for Beginners is an opportunity to meet with others who are new to the skill and to learn at your own pace in a supportive setting. Join me (whether you are a knitter or not) if you want to learn how to crochet, or even if you feel you need a refresher course after taking a break – this is the class for you!
What topics are covered?
Holding your hook and yarn
The magic ring
After getting used to holding the hook and yarn to get a consistent tension, we will move on to a number of small projects including how to crochet flowers, granny squares, and – best of all – an introduction to amigurumi (that’s Japanese for a small, knitted, stuffed toy).
By the end of the course we will have collaboratively crocheted a blanket, and all have our own personalised projects to take home and cherish.
How will I learn?
You will learn as part of a small group – with practical demonstrations during the session and with handouts to take home to remind you of the skills you are honing.
Are there any additional costs?
No additional costs as yarn and crochet hooks will be provided by the college.
What do I need to bring?
We will provide you with yarn and hooks to get started, but if you want to use your own materials, we will be starting with:
size 4.00mm crochet hook
cotton yarn DK weight
