This is a more advanced course for people who are fairly comfortable with crochet and would like to expand their skills

Dates: 2nd June – 14th July (7 weeks)
Time: 7 – 8pm Tuesdays
Venue: Wyeside Arts Centre, Builth Wells

Cost: £63

You will need to bring a 3mm or 3.5mm crochet hook, yarn needle and yarn (dk weight acrylic but you can use a cotton dk if you prefer) but don’t worry if you don’t have any yarn, I will have some available to buy on my website.  For the bag pictured I used Stylecraft Special dk.

How much yarn will you need? As mentioned above I used Stylecraft Special dk on my bag and it seemed to use less yarn than the pattern calls for, I used a lot less than a full 100g ball of each colour, there are 7 colours, 3 of which you don’t need a lot of.
I chose to use the following for my bag: walnut, burgundy, duck egg, gold, empire, lipstick and emperor
If you do decide to use cotton here is what the pattern says to use (colours are obviously optional):
150g peach
150g raspberry
100g light blue
100g navy blue
50g dark turquoise
50g rusty red.

On this course you will learn:

  • How to crochet with 2 strands of yarn at the same time by working over the strand you are not using, to create patterns
  • How to do the above without getting your yarn tangled
  • back loop only stitches
  • to read a diagram pattern (specifically a Drops yarn pattern)
  • increase and decrease stitches as part of pattern making
  • how to create a twisted cord
  • how to make tassels

NB: Payments are non-refundable once the course has begun.
