Workshops // Coming up // Crochet Advanced Beginner: Textures
17 January

Crochet Advanced Beginner: Textures

‘Crochet: Textures’ follows on from our ‘Crochet Foundation for Beginners’ course, exploring a variety of stitches creating textural effects. It is a great way to build on your foundational skills, expand your crochet knowledge, and grow in confidence. 

See the course outline below for details on the techniques covered.

Every week we will work on a sample covering a technique, and visual and written resources will be provided. 

This course is suitable for experienced beginners who have a grasp of basic crochet skills and want to increase their knowledge of different stitches and techniques. The level is appropriate for those who have completed a Crochet Foundation for Beginners with Cathy, or who are comfortable with foundation chains, and double and treble crochet stitches.

A kit including some yarns and a hook will be provided to make your samples. You may bring your own yarn and tools if you prefer, and a notebook is helpful.

Course outline

WEEK ONE: Bobbles and puff stitches - we will learn how to use volume to create bobbles and puffs.

WEEK TWO: Mesh and lace - we will explore how to create openwork crochet fabrics, and will create some lace mesh samples.

WEEK THREE: Ribs and basketweaves - we will explore the ‘round the post’ technique to create ribbed and basketweave textures.

This course runs on Tuesday 17th, 24th and 31st January. All classes must be attended. 

You may also be interested in ‘Crochet: Stripes and Checks’ which is the same level and explores a different set of techniques.
