Tapestry Crochet Christmas Bauble

Using the tapestry crochet technique I will be running a Christmas Course at Crates of Wool on the 2nd December 10.00am to 12.30pm, there will be mince pies too! You will need to be able to crochet, but just knowing how to chain and double crochet is all you need. You will need to bring a 3.5mm hook, but the pattern, yarn and filling will be provided. Cost £18

Crochet for All Course

I will be running this course at my new venue – Crates of Wool a new wool shop in Ware.   We will be starting again in January dates to be agreed.  The course is for beginners or returners to crochet, I will be going slower for those who are just starting, and can give you additional hints and tips if you already know how to do a bit.  The course also develops your pattern reading skills starting week 1 with whole words, and ending on week 5 with a full pattern!

I am now specialising in teaching left handed, so just let me know when booking if you are left handed and I will provide appropriate instructions, and be able to demonstrate for you.

The course is broken down as follows

 

Week 1:  Holding the hook and yarn, making chains and treble

stitches, working in rows.

 

Week 2:  Working in the round, slip stitch, chains and treble

stitches, colour changes, making a ‘granny’ square.

 

 

Week 3:  Working into the foundation chain, more stitches – double

crochet, half treble, double treble and more!

 

 

Week 4:  Increasing and decreasing, mastering a ripple pattern.

 

 

 

 

Week 5:  Reading a commercial pattern, making a flower square.

 

 

Through the 5 weeks, we will develop skills from the previous week, we will be reading patterns from week 1 but written in whole words, working up to full patterns in week 5.

All the patterns used are originals by Diana.

The course costs £80, payable by cash/card at the start of the course, and includes all teaching materials, crochet hook, yarn for samples, and refreshments!

Tuesday evenings 7-9pm, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th Jan, 6th Feb,
