The foundation row is the... eh, very foundation of crocheting in rows!! It's where lots of possibilities begin and the perfect place to start learning about this beautiful craft.
In Week 1 (14 May) of this beginners crochet-along we’ll look at how to create a foundation row and use the 3 basic stitches - single crochet, half double and double crochet (US terms) to make a super-simple napkin ring. Between classes perhaps you'll make more!
In Week 2 (21 May) we'll take the foundation row and the same 3 stitches a step further. You can still create amazing things with the simplest of techniques and I'll show you how to use what you've already learned to crochet roses and leaves to decorate our napkin rings.
One napkin ring is a fantastic start, but a whole set will let you practice your technique and hopefully inspire you to discover more.
This workshop takes place in the Sew Silly Lily Crochet Cabin. Classes are small so we can take things slow and steady, and you shouldn't be worrying about holding anyone up. I'll provide essential crochet refreshments and sweet treats and you'll need to bring the materials listed below to crochet-along. I'll have some hooks & supplies you can make use of too. The CAL is perfect for absolute beginners, for brushing up on forgotten skills or maybe you like the idea of some crochet with actual people!
What you'll need to crochet-along:
a crochet hook - 3.0mm, 3.5mm or 4.0mm
double knit or aran weight yarn in a main colour and others for the roses
scissors and a big eye needle
Once you're booked I'll be in touch to confirm the address and travel options.
Taking this workshop is me, Sharon Goodwin from Sew Silly Lily. I'm a graduate of Glasgow School of Art with a lifelong passion for textiles, craft and design. When it comes to crochet, I'm totally self-taught and still discovering. I really want to share all the best skills, tips and techniques I have learned - everything I wish someone had been able to share with me from the beginning of my journey.
