About the event
Are you just starting your crochet or want to learn some new skills? Over a period of 6 weeks, this course is the perfect opportunity to master the granny square - learning hints and tips along the way.
Over the course of this workshop you will learn how to create single colour granny squares, squares with colour changes and sunburst squares as well as the Join As You Go Method to create a seamless blanket. You will also learn bobble stitch, cluster stitch, granny dot stitch and linen stitch - putting them together to create your own stunning blanket.
Donna will guide you through each step of the blanket and provide all the help and support you need to complete your project. You will have time during each workshop to create each design but you will be given some homework to complete each week before the next session. This independent practise will help you develop your skills and gain confidence.
