This is a workshop for the more experienced crocheter in two parts. Michelle Cresswell from Owl & Slipper will be showing you how to make beautiful, colourful flower coasters ( diameter  9cm). During the first session you will learn the basic stitch and start on the coaster. The second session will be about re-enforcing technique and stitches used, completing more flower coasters and then learning the techniques to make into a garland. You will learn the following during the two sessions:

–         Chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet and counting stitches. Different edging techniques.

–         How to read a simple crochet pattern

–         Understand yarn weights, tension and gauge and hook sizes.

–         Leave with a completed coaster or garland.

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 £6. 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 dk cotton yarn, min 50g ball.

This will only be in small groups of 6 people only to ensure that you have Michelle’s undivided attention – a quality rather than quantity approach.
