About this Event

Join us for this fabulous Summer Project at Seeded to create the samll version of the Havana Shawl from Tinna Thórudóttir Thorvaldsdóttir.

Expereience the colour and joy that is to be found in this delighful crochet pattern and develop your technique in mosiac crochet.

Tinna says:-

"The Havana Shawl is a variant of my Havana Afghan, which was a Pippin Crochet Club CAL in 2018. Both are worked with the wonderful mosaic crochet technique.

I first came to know the mosaic crochet technique through the lovely Apache Tears blanket pattern, and when I started playing around with it, my Havana Afghan came to light. At the time I was living in Havana (like I am now) and I wanted to make a big piece inspired by this uniquely colorful and beautiful city. When walking the streets of Havana, it’s inevitable to be inspired by the multitude of patterns and colors that meet your eyes everywhere you look! As a Nordic, I am not used to this in my surroundings (we tend to be a bit more organized up there!) so what always astounds me is how all the different and mismatching tiles, colors and patterns then all come together and make a beautiful colorful whole. That was the inspiration for my Havana Afghan and consequently my Havana Shawl; a lot of different colors and patterns, that then come together as a whole."

We will run this CAL throughout August in the evenings, on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th - you dont have to come along to all of the sessions, but we do find its a great way to motivate and get to know your fellow crocheters!

At the first session we will cover the basic techniques of mosaic crochet and then carry on at our own personal pace at the following dates.

This session is ideal for intermediate crocheters and those who want to develop their skills. The pattern uses the following combination of stitches (in US terms)

  • slip stitch
  • chain stitch
  • single crochet
  • double crochet

The cost of the session is £35.00 which includes six balls of either Scheepjes Stonewashed or Riverwashed cotton acrylic blend (in colours of your choice) a copy of the pattern and all refreshments.

This yarn quantity will be sufficient to create the shawl - if you want to go on to make the medium or larger sizes, you will have the opportunity to purchse the additional yarn at a special rate - do ask us for more details.

Please bring a 3.5mm hook with you, or choose the 'With Hook' option when getting your ticket.

We are also offering this as a project you can take away on holiday with you or work on at home - tickets for this are priced at £25.00 and include the yarn and a copy of the pattern or £28.00 with the 3.5mm hook.

You can either purchase your ticket via Eventbrite (fees do apply) or pop in store.
