'4 Week Beginners Crochet'  with Emma Wilkinson

Beginners crochet is perfect for both absolute beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills. Starting with basic stitches you will learn about tension, holding the hook, stitch names and keeping your edges straight.

Week two will focus on a mini project to bring all your new skills together, but also introducing decorative edges.

Embellishments in week three will see you making beautiful bows and flowers, whilst concentrating on pattern and chart reading. 

We will also start to think about the type of blanket you would like to make in week four. Once you have started your blanket, it is the perfect project to take home and complete at your leisure.

Materials required throughout the course are a 4mm hook, 5mm hook, scissors, wool needle, and a minimum of three 100g balls of different colour double knitting wool for use on all projects throughout the course.  A high quality acrylic double knitting wool would be preferable to avoid splitting such as Stylecraft Special Double Knitting.  A small selection of hooks and wool will be available to purchase from the tutor for £2 per ball and hooks for £1.50 each.

10:30 - 12:30 £50 per person plus materials during the course if needed.
