Kat is holding a month-long celebration of crochet over at her place. It’s an introduction to slip knots, yarn, making woolly loops into fabric with a stick – everything you need to know to begin.
There will be sumptuous, free, downloadable patterns (the first one is already up), gentle step-by-step guides, trouble-shooting – the whole hooky nine yards. There are even crochet camp kits (although I think there may only be one or two left). You can read more here. I have my eye on the handwarmers and shall be attempting to venture into the world of Granny squares. Hooks out, and….crochet….
Yet another skill to pick up! When will I have time!
What a clever idea to have a crochet camp. I did click over to the site and think that the instructions and photos are exceptionally clear.
I predict that lots of yarn, of all sorts of weight, will soon be sold. Crocheting gives results much more quickly than knitting, which is only one of its appealing characteristics.
Thanks so much for posting about this Emma, I have been trying (and failing) to learn to crochet for ages and will definatly pop over to this, it looks really good and hopefully I can finally learn the art of crochet! Safxxx
