BEGINNERS CROCHET WORKSHOP – HEART BUNTING
PART 1 – 28th January and 11th February 2013
PART 2 – 25th February and 4th March 2013
with Owl & Slipper
7.30-9.30pm at Brighton Road Baptist Church, Horsham
This is a workshop for total beginners in two parts. Michelle Cresswell from Owl & Slipper will be showing you how to make a heart shape for heart bunting or garland and showing you how to construct the various edging patterns. During the first session you will learn the basic stitch and be on your way to finishing the first heart. As they are quite straight forward you could then make more in the time in-between the two sessions. The second session will be about re-enforcing technique and stitches used and then the different edging (loops, bobbles, scalloped edges and more).
You will learn the following during the two sessions:
– How to comfortably hold the yarn and hook
– Chain stitch, single crochet, counting stitches, increasing and decreasing using single crochet. Different edging techniques.
– How to read a simple crochet pattern
– Understand yarn weights, tension and gauge and hook sizes.
– Leave with a completed heart (12cm x 14cm) or more to complete the heart bunting in your own time.
Crochet starter packs are available from Michelle but must be pre-ordered. This includes a hook, stitch conversion chart, illustrated instructions, a pattern and a ball of 100% cotton yarn from a choice of colours for only £5.50. She will also be selling the cotton yarn separately for £3 for a ball of 50g. If you don’t wish to purchase a pack please bring with you a 3.5mm or 4mm sized hook and cotton yarn.
This will only be in very exclusive small groups of 6 people only to ensure that you have Michelle’s undivided attention. We are going for a quality rather than quantity approach to crochet for the total beginners!
