Crochet Foundation For Beginners

Crochet Foundation for Beginners covers the foundational skills you need to start your crochet journey. 

We will cover; starting off, foundation chain, double, treble, and cluster stitches; working in rows and in the round; changing colours, and an introduction to reading patterns and charts. 

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

A kit including some yarns and a hook will be provided to make your samples, and advice on purchasing yarns for projects will be given if asked for. This course is suitable for beginners and those who want to revisit the basics.
