The lovely Patrice from Yarn Over Pull Through, has kindly agreed to let me blog post on her fantastic Crochet Website
You can read "How I got Hooked on Crochet" here
Yesterday evening I taught "The Sisters"
After only a few lessons they are beginning to read, understand and begin to create Crochet works of art from patterns...
I broke them in gently by taking them through a pattern featured in my book
"Crochet for Beginners who want to Improve"
They found the pattern, written in my unique "Traffic Light Teaching System" easy to understand & they are now prepared to follow more patterns which we will do in their next lesson!
Oh I nearly forgot to tell you - they both loved my new hat from Issue 47 of Inside Crochet mag designed by Claire Montgomerie - they both tried it on and said that they would love to make one
They also liked my Pom Hat - available in Issue 45 of Inside Crochet & said they wanted to make this one too!
Can you tell I love Crochet Hats??
This morning I had my Brand New Beginners Class
So I thought I would make a clear sign to hang on my gate so that they could easily find me
And here they all are after having mastered the "key" basic -
The Foundation Chain
I say "key" as I know that by learning to make a Foundation Chain correctly, you are learning the techniques - how to hold the wool correctly, the movement needed, eye to hand co ordination & stitch identification - all important for learning the stitches that are yet to come
Well done ladies!
