If you are still new to crochet and are wondering “where to from here?”, this is the class for you.
In our next steps class you will learn how to read a written and charted pattern, how to do increases and decreases, and how to “read” your crocheted piece (counting stitches and rows). And you will get started on an easy pattern - your choice of a hat, mitts or string bag.
Skill level: you should be able to make the basic crochet stitches (ie this is NOT a beginner crochet class)
Class materials: smooth light coloured (not variegated) bulky weight yarn (eg Eden) and a 6.5mm hook for the hat or mitts, or for the string bag, 8ply/dk or 10ply/worsted cotton or cotton blend yarn and a 4mm or 4.5mm hook.
Cost: $68 You're also entitled to 10% off any purchases you make in store on the day.
Your teacher: Jane Downey
Inspired by her grandmother, who would crochet intricate tablecloths without even referring to a pattern, Jane learned to crochet as a teen and has been crocheting now for over 30 years. Jane is a member of the Knitters' Guild of NSW and has taught crochet both for Guild meetings and at the Guild's camp, as well as at several yarn stores in Sydney. Jane has won prizes for her crochet at both the Sydney Royal Easter Show and the St Ives Show. Jane loves crochet because of the variety of projects it lends itself to, and because it's a lot easier to fudge than knitting (mostly!).
