About the event

In this comprehensive beginner's course you will learn the basic skills of crochet and gain confidence to create your own fabulous pieces.  Over 4 weeks you will learn how to hold and manipulate the hook, create the basic stitches which are the foundation of all projects, make squares, work in the round and read patterns.

Session 1:  February 8th

Get to know your hook!  

The hardest part of crochet is becoming comfortable with holding and working the hook.  In this 1st session you will find your way of holding the hook, tensioning the yarn and creating slip stitches and double crochet stitches.

Take home: a lavender stem (or 2)

Session 2: February 15th

 Learn the stitches

In this session you will learn the treble crochet stitch and how to create an iconic granny square.

Take home: a granny square

Session 3: February 22nd

 Working in the round

Working in the round is so easy to get wrong, but once you've learned the maths (sorry, but it is true) it is easy to put right.  Today you will learn how to create a simple circle

Take home: a coaster or re-usable make up remover pad

Session 4:  February 29th
