Class Name: Virtual Crochet Workshops – One Step Beyond
Learners per Class: 6
No. of Sessions: 1
Length of Session: 0.75 hours
Recently we have been designing a next level crochet course to follow on directly from our beginners course however we decided to take it virtual and split it up into separate workshops for you. Each session will see Karen teaching you a different technique or following a different pattern through our virtual classroom on Zoom.
All of these sessions will be listed below in terms of who they are for, what they will cover and what you need to bring along. Please double check this before booking onto a session and make sure you have picked the right date as each week will be a different session.
Cracking Corner 2 Corner:
For this session you will need double knit yarn in more than one colour, a size 4mm crochet hook or similar, and a method to get online. You should already be able to chain, slip stitch and treble crochet to attend this virtual session. Before the session you will be provided with an electronic pattern for corner to corner to refer to, if you have a printer we think having a hard copy to look at would help.
We will learn how to create multiple rows of corner to corner crochet, how to change colour, and how to decrease rows to complete your project to make squares or rectangles of corner to corner. We will work off a written pattern together so this will help to build your confidence in pattern reading too.
Treble Beanie Hat in two parts:
For this session you will need a 100g ball of yarn, you can choose any thickness and type of yarn for this project and will need a crochet hook sized to match your chosen yarn, and a method to get online. You should already be able to chain, slip stitch and treble crochet to attend this virtual session. Before the session you will be provided with an electronic pattern for corner to corner to refer to, if you have a printer we think having a hard copy to look at would help.
Part One: We will learn how to start a project with a magic ring (and a cheats way if it’s a bit tricky for you), how to work in rounds, how to alter the pattern to suit your chosen yarn, head size and required slouchy-ness! You will be talked through the start of the pattern step by step so if you find following patterns tricky this will be great practice.
Part Two: We will learn front post trebles and back post trebles to create a rib to complete your treble beany hat. There will also be time in this session to help with main part of the hat if you have been struggling to get it going since part one for whatever reason.
Blooming Lovely – Creating a Sunflower with leaves:
For the session you will need two colours of yarn in your chosen thickness for the flower, along with another colour in the same thickness to make the leaves and a hook to match the size of your yarn, and yet again a method to get online. You should already by able to chain, slip stitch, double crochet, half treble, treble, and double treble.
We will learn how to make a magic ring or loop, invisible fix yarn, and how to popcorn! Sorry no movies involved in this one.
Waffle, waffle, waffle:
For the session you will need some chunky wool if possible and a 6mm hook or if you don’t have any chunky yarn and an alternative and hook to match yarn. The pattern allows you to make a cushion cover or cowl which you will start in the session and finish afterwards. These both depending on size are likely to need 2 100g balls of chunky. If you want to make a scarf you will obviously need more yarn. You should already by able to chain, slip stitch, and treble, we will learn everything else during the session including front post trebles and how to follow the pattern.
Joining Granny Squares:
NO sewing required but you will need pre-made granny squares and a colour of yarn in the same thickness to join them with. During the session you will use a different colour of wool to create a border to your pre-made squares to join them together without any sewing. You need a minimum of 4 completed squares to take part in this session along with wool to join them and a crochet hook. You should already know all the stitches involved in granny squares as you will have made them before the session.
