Crochet – for Beginners

Crochet is a versatile technique, easy and quick to learn. Unlike other crafts, it only requires yarn and a crochet hook. Stitches are worked individually on top of each other so there is no need to cast off at the end of your work. You can create different kinds of accessories, garments and home textiles, in two or three dimensions.

During this course you will learn the basic crochet stitches, how to create textures, to work in rows and in rounds, to read crochet charts and to make a simple beanie.
