We’ll be using a durable, environmentally friendly cord made from natural cotton twisted rope. This cotton cord produces sturdy shape stability and crisp stitch definition. Crocheting with cotton is a great way to improve the intricacies of your crochet technique and I will be on hand to guide you.
This project can be made from start to finish in an evening. You will have all the yarn, tuition and support you need to help you to complete the project. I have crochet hooks to lend during the session or to purchase. We’ll be working in the range of 7 mm / 8 mm hooks.
There will be a step by step photo pattern for the project, plus tips and ideas for how to work with this type of cord. You’ll get all the materials you need and support with pattern reading during the workshop.
We’ll learn how to start neatly and finish off with a beautiful crab stitch edging.
SKILL LEVEL – Basic crochet skills required!
This project requires basic stitch making and a comfortable hook hold. If you’ve never picked up a hook before, we’ll be running beginner’s crochet workshops in the Autumn term.
We’ll be using basic stitches and US Terms: Slip stitch & single crochet, which equate to UK Terms: Slip stitch & double crochet.
I have easy stitch conversion sheets if you need one.
