Crochet for Beginners (3-week course) (daytime)


Enjoy three weeks learning all the crochet essentials! Debbie will teach you all you need to know to get started with your first crochet projects.

You’ll make 3 small, fun projects, each one specifically designed to allow you to practice your skills as you learn.

Course level:

No crochet skills are required – Debbie will be starting right at the beginning. Have some experience or returning to crochet? This course is also a great refresher.

What you will learn:
  • Making a slipknot
  • Making a foundation chain (and what one is!)
  • Slipstitch
  • Double crochet
  • Treble crochet
  • Increasing
  • Decreasing
  • Making a simple square (granny square)
  • Reading crochet charts and patterns
  • Finishing and seaming
  • Tension (gauge) and why it matters
  • Tips and tricks for avoiding common mistakes (and how to fix them!)
What’s included:

All materials are included – we provide quality materials – lovely yarn, crochet hook, comprehensive professionally illustrated photo handouts and a selection of Debbie’s own, exclusive patterns. We also include tea, coffee and biccies!

About your tutor:

Debbie has over 12 years’ experience teaching crochet and has been a published crochet designer for over 25 years so you’ll be in good hands!
