Back by popular demand! We are pleased to offer another crochet weekend which is aimed at those with intermediate crochet skills. The weekend will begin on Friday 20 March at 6pm with a welcome drink. There will be a session in the evening followed by supper.
The main project for the weekend will be a Bavarian stitch cushion cover with envelope fastening. The weekend tutorial sessions will also include making a Tunisian crochet sampler, tips for tackling Amigurumi toys, working in the round, increasing and invisible decreases, joining and carrying additional colour yarns and reading patterns and diagrams.
Each participant will receive a goodie bag/yarn pack containing the yarns to complete all the projects, a cushion inner, Tunisian crochet hook, buttons, stitch markers and gift. Good quality yarn will be supplied by Ammonite Yarns. If you book by 20 February you will be able to choose from three colour options for the main project.
The weekend will end on Sunday 22 March at 12 noon.
Price includes expert crochet tuition, accommodation in your choice of room type (subject to availability), a welcome drink, breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday, supper on Friday and Saturday, lunch on Saturday and coffee/tea breaks with refreshments on Saturday and Sunday.
You only need to bring your favourite hooks (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4mm and 4.5mm are those most likely to be needed – but spares will be available for you to borrow if needed), darning needle, scissors and a measuring tape (optional).
