About the course

You will be guided through how to do various crochet stitches and develop your crochet skills and techniques.

At the end of this course, you will have also completed your first wearable item – a crocheted scarf.

Course Content:

  • slip knot, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet and magic circle

  • how to work in rows, rounds and in a continuous round

  • how to read crochet patterns and the difference between UK and US terminology

  • increasing and decreasing stitches

  • amigurumi (making crochet toys)

You will need to bring:

  • A 4mm crochet hook to your first lesson (later on you will also need a 3mm hook)

  • Scissors

During the first lesson your tutor will let you try out different hooks before you commit to purchasing an expensive hook. There are lots of different quality and priced hooks available, and you would need one suitable for your crochet technique. If you already have a preferred hook, please bring it with you. The tutor will supply yarn, stitch markers and tapestry needles.
