In this section we will explore a brief history of crochet and its use today. We will then look at the anatomy of a crochet hook and how we might hold it, moving on to thinking about hook styles and some thoughts on sizes to use, followed by some other accessories you might find helpful.
At the end of the section we will then look at some quick tips for choosing yarn for your projects before looking at those first early stitches!
Here in part two we will start to look at those basic stitches needed in crochet.
The basic techniques of crochet:
We will start to learn about the slip knot and foundation chain, and how we make that first foundation row.
Working on from that we will start making those first stitches and the 3 main stitches that are particularly helpful as a beginner. You will learn:
1.Double crochet (UK) or Single crochet (USA)
2.Half treble crochet stitch (UK) or Half double crochet (USA)
3. Treble crochet (UK) or Double crochet(USA)
At the end of the session we will bring it all together with practice swatches of your own with a small task for your to try out in your own time.
In part three we will be looking at patterns and how they might be set out.
We will look at the some of the most common abbreviations in a pattern and what they mean and will then look at how to read a pattern from the example provided.
Finally we will then wrap up the session by starting to think about your own style of crocheting, what kind of projects you like and to now start thinking of yourself as a crocheter!
