Crochet For Starters
In this course you’ll learn to:
- choose the right hook for yarn.
- hold the hook and yarn.
- make a chain, slip stitch, double and treble crochet stitches.
- make a traditional granny square.
- join granny squares.
- as well as understand basic crochet instructions.
You’ll learn how to hold the crochet hook and yarn whilst practicing chain stitch and the double crochet stitch. By the end of the first session you’ll have created your very own unique crochet sample :)
Next I'll teach some alternative stitches: slip stitch and treble crochet. And because you'll have already learnt to hold the hook you’ll pick these new stitches up much quicker. Then you’ll make your first granny square. As you do so, you’ll learn some abbreviations used for crochet instructions and symbols used in crochet charts.
In the final section or class, you’ll create your first project! Joining granny squares means you can go away and make cushion covers, bags, scarves and throws: anything that is based on a square or rectangle!
