Crochet

A beginners course showing you all the skills and techniques you will need to help you create your very first crochet amigurumi project and your own Dave the Dog!

What You’ll Learn

  • How to create a basic amigurumi project
  • How to work the magic circle
  • How to read an amigurumi pattern
  • How to increase and decrease crochet stitches
  • How to work in the back loops of your project

Skills Required

Course Description

Amigurumi is a Japanese word which describes small knitted or crochet animals or characters

This course introduces you to the world of crochet amigurumi.

We will work our way through a basic amigurumi pattern to create Dave the Dog.  I will show you how to work the magic circle to start your project, how to increase and decrease (both a standard decrease and invisible decrease) and how to understand a crochet pattern.   

I love teaching crochet and teach it regularly across the UK.  I love the mindful aspects that crochet can bring, to help us switch off from the busy world and also create some beautiful and fun projects.
