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.
