I’m super-pleased to be able to announce that I will be teaching a crochet class at the Stash Fine Yarns shop in Chester on Saturday, 9th May.
My LYS in Chester
I have been talking about this for a while with my lovely friends at Stash, and now it’s great that we can go ahead with this class that’s designed to help beginners and near beginners to get going with their crochet.
The class runs from 1.00pm – 3.30pm, and class size will be small, so I can get to have a 1:1 with everyone.
I’ve designed the class so that participants will have the opportunity to learn the basic stitches, and also how to combine them to make interesting stitch patterns. By the end of the class everyone should have the confidence and ability to ‘go it alone’ with a crochet hook and a ball of yarn.
All the information is available on Stash’s own Website, but here is a little bit more about it:
Starting with a quick look at choosing the right yarn and tools, you will learn:
- how to hold the hook and yarn
- chain stitch
- slip stitch
- double crochet stitch
- half treble stitch
- treble stitch
- working in rows
- changing colours
You’ll also get a reference sheet that shows you the stitch symbols, stitch abbreviations and their American equivalents and a list of recommended reading.
There will also be time for participants to start a project with their new knowledge. I’ve been working on a new pattern that will be an exclusive for the course members. Everyone will get a copy of the pattern to take away with them.
I’m super-excited about leading this class at Stash and looking forward to passing on my skills and passion for crochet.
