‘Crochet: Stripes and Checks’ follows on from our ‘Crochet Foundation for Beginners’ course, exploring a variety of stitches worked in rows and with multiple colours. 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.
WEEK ONE: Wave stitches - we will explore using combinations of double and treble stitches and changing colours to create different striped wavy patterns.
WEEK TWO: Colourwork - We will learn how to work with multiple colours within a row to create a checked pattern, and will explore the technique further, looking at how to create other shapes and motifs.
WEEK THREE: Chevron stripes - We will learn the chevron stitch, working stitches together and working multiple stitches in the same space to understand the technique and experiment with scale and repeats.
This course runs on wednesday 30th November, 7th & 14th December.
