I only learned to crochet a couple of years ago but as many of you will know, I am completely hooked! It’s a great hobby that doesn’t cost too much – you just need a crochet hook and some yarn. It doesn’t take lots of setting up so you can literally pick your work up and do 5 minutes and put it back again. It’s quiet so you can happily sit in front of the television in the evening pottering away. It certainly feeds my colour addiction, I have a worryingly large collection of wool – but I feel the need to have a ball in every colour just in case..!
I’ve taught a few friends during the past year so thought I would see if anyone else would like to learn. I can come to your house for 2 hours and teach you the basics – how to cast on, do a chain stitch and treble stitch and show you how to make a granny square. This is one of the best first projects to get used to crocheting with these stitches in the round. For £15, I’ll bring you a ball of yarn and a 4.5mm hook to keep. I’ll also give you a printed pattern for a granny sqaure and the basic stitches for you to refer back to. Why not ask some friends to join you and then you can share colours and create a square like the one shown in the photo. Give me a ring if you would like to book a lesson. Thank you, Louise
