During this evening you will be shown how to make the Festive star shown in the photo and also the traditional Granny Square and how to change yarns to add extra colours. If you've already familiarised yourself with chains and double/treble crochet then this evening will help you shape these new skills into lovely Festive touches for the season.
Alternatively, if you simply want to improve your crochet skills, come along! We'll show you how to knit a star and a granny square. Crochet is for a lifetime. Not just for Christmas! ;)
This workshop is suitable for new beginners, those who want to refresh their techniqe and those who simply enjoy crochet and would like to make some Christmas decorations.
You will need for the class:
Small amounts of 4ply, Fingering or Sock yarns in your choice of 'Festive' colours
3.mm crochet hook
Thin bracelet (e.g. from Claire’s accessories) to support the star
A smooth DK weight yarn for the Granny Square
A crochet hook size 4.00mm or 4.5mm or selection of crochet hooks (if you don’t have a hook before the class, one can be purchased on the day after advice about the different sizes of hook)
We have hooks and lovely yarn available on the day to suit all budgets.
