The class was small, with 6 ladies and the instructor. The atmosphere was quite relaxed and everyone was encouraged to go at their own pace. The instructor was quite good and demonstrated the stitches for both right-handed and left-handed crocheters.
The all-day class appealed as it meant not having to stay back late to do a night class over a few weeks. It did however, mean that you learnt a lot, and it was a lot to take in. My shoulders are a bit sore from being hunched over as well.
So what did I learn?
- Double Crochet
- Treble Crochet
- Chain Stitch and Slip Stitch
- Granny Squares
- Changing Colours
- Increasing and Decreasing
- How to make little flowers
- How to do a shell stitch
The course came with yarn, a hook, a wool needle, course booklets and a Patons book on how to crochet.
I learned I need to work on my tension, and on controlling the yarn. Just because it’s one hook involved doesn’t mean it’s easier than knitting!
I see myself practicing a lot, and see some scarves and granny squares in my future. It was enjoyable and challenging learning a new craft, and sure beat staring at a screen today :).
