Whether you’ve never touched a crochet hook or you’re simply looking to refresh your skills, with Crochet Lab: Basic Techniques & Patterns you’ll be crafting beautiful custom creations in no time.
Taught by Vickie Howell, energetic star of TV’s Knitty Gritty and co-host of DIY Network’s Stylelicious, this online Craftsy class will guide you from the fundamentals of crocheting to a completed Granny Square – the perfect, versatile building block for everything from baby blankets to beautiful hats and sweaters.
You’ll begin with the basics: picking the right yarn and hooks for your projects, essential stitches (including single, double and half-double crochet), and putting it all together to create a square motif. Vickie will lead you through measuring gauge and reading a crochet pattern, and you’ll also learn to crochet a charming cozy for your tech gadgets.
