Crochet is such a broad subject with so many aspects to explore - once you learn the basics you'll never be short of something new to do with your new found skills! Our Crochet Tutor, Sally Hart, has devised a wonderful set of beginners projects and larger pieces you can progress onto as your skills improve.
Sally will start you off by showing you how to make a perfectly sized cover for your own phone, pad or laptop and then move onto creating 'granny squares' joining them together and finishing their edges so that they can be used to make the gorgeous bolster shaped cushion Sally has devised or anything else you fancy. Perhaps a blanket?
Sally then moves onto making 3D crochet flowers and leaves to decorate wreathe and all manner of other things. She takes you through each skill set in her video tutorials and has provided patterns for you to work from for the items listed above. Crochet is a wonderful, mindful pursuit that is super easy to pack and take anywhere with you as you only need a hook and a ball of yarn. You'll love it!!
*NB Left handed video instructions are also available in this course.
