Crochet Fundamentals Part 2

Cathy Van Hear

Crochet Fundamentals Part 2 will provide a framework to build on basic crochet skills and take your crochet work and projects a step further. Leading on from Part 1 where we cover the basics, this course will flesh out your understanding of different crochet techniques and will cover chevron stitches, mesh, puffs, bobbles, and colourwork. We will work on a different stitch each week and will undertake research on modern textile practitioners to contextualise our work within the contemporary craft landscape.

Students will leave this course with a selection of swatches they have created, alongside worksheets and resources created by the teacher. There will be a weekly email after class with links to helpful video resources to support continued practice at home.

This course is suitable for students who have completed Crochet Fundamentals Part 1, or beginners with an understanding of chain stitch, double, and treble crochet.
