Crochet is a timeless, ever-evolving craft that is hard to put down once the absolute basics have been taught. With just a crochet hook and a ball of yarn, the possibilities are endless and one can make more than just a simple bookmark or a plain, circular coaster. There is also the scope for working with different colours and alternating between stitch heights to make a variety of shapes, from scalloped edges to stars. Ideal for students who have already experienced the Absolute Beginners Crochet course or who have some basic understanding of the craft.


  • Face-to-Face


  • Mastering the art of reading mainstream crochet patterns, including understanding the relevant shorthand and terminology
  • Learning the basics of how to add in a new ball of yarn and to change colours
  • Mastering the basics of increasing and decreasing stitches in a project
  • Learning two new stitches: US half double crochet (HDC) and US treble crochet (TR)
  • Making shapes using different stitch heights
  • Joining separate crochet pieces together for a project
  • Understanding the importance of blocking finished crochet projects and how to go about doing it

  1. Know how to join in a new ball of yarn for a project, including different colours
  2. Understand how stitch heights work and how these can be manipulated in order to create shapes
  3. Demonstrate the basics of increasing and decreasing stitches
