Using a mix of increase and decrease methods in the round along with back post crochet stitches it's far easier than it looks at first glance. On the day we will work through the techniques used to make a selection of brightly coloured blocks.
This workshop is suitable for those who know the basic crochet stitches. See more details here.
This workshop is all about exploring brioche knitting. It's all about slipping stitches and carrying yarn over the top of the needle, then once a few rows have been worked catching together the stitch and the yarn that's been carried to create the brioche effect. All yarn is included. We will work through a small sample fabric to get to grips with the techniques used, then cast on to make a wonderful reversible cowl in the round. See more details here.
