This is a workshop for total beginners in two parts with the lovely Michelle Cresswell from Owl & Slipper , This is her seventh workshop for us now! She will be showing you how to make a medium sized crochet bowl (height 5cm, diameter at top 13cm). During the first session you will learn the basic stitch technique and start on the bowl. The second session will be about re-enforcing technique and stitches used and then learning the stitches for the edging. You will learn the following during the two sessions:
– How to comfortably hold the yarn and hook
– Chain stitch, single crochet, counting stitches, increasing using single crochet. Different edging techniques.
– How to read a simple crochet pattern
– Understand yarn weights, tension and gauge and hook sizes.
– Hopefully leave with a completed bowl.
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 and contrast yarn for the stripe from a choice of colours for only £6. She will also be selling the cotton yarn separately for £3 for a ball of 50g.
