Itinerary

The weekend begins with learning to crochet in rows using the three basic stitches (double crochet, half treble and treble) before embarking on the classic granny square. You will learn how to achieve perfect straight edges (no more wonky scarves!) as well as how to crochet in the round, change colour and join squares. You will leave with the skills and confidence needed to continue making a colourful granny square blanket.
