Learn to Crochet! (2/4)
Time & Location
About the Workshop
Learn to Crochet! In this series you'll learn everything you need to know to get hooked on crochet. We'll work through all the basic stitches, both working flat and in the round to give you a solid foundation for moving on in your crochet adventure. Using the Planet Friendly series offered by Wool & The Gang, you'll make The Everything Cloth, Tea Time Towel & Rub a Dub Dub Face Scrubbies. Fun, useful and environmentally friendly, these handy cotton kitchen and bath accessories are not only perfect for learning how to crochet but you'll also have the joy of using your projects around the house after you're done.
Building on the skills learned in the first workshop, you'll learn how to create double crochet stitches while working on the Tea Time Towel. We'll also talk about how to keep your edges even while working on successive rows, plus discuss how to perfect your tension and how to decide what size hook you should be using when working on future projects.

About our Host:
Many years ago while homeschooling, Terri was looking for a quiet, creative hobby to do alongside her daughter while she worked on her lessons.
What began as something to pass the time turned into a passion for all fibre arts. With her daughter all grown up, Terri found herself in love with knitting, crochet, embroidery, quilting and anything else that involves wool, thread or fabric and wanted to share her skills with everyone! She's both worked at and taught in several local yarn shops in Toronto over the years and happily converts anyone that's willing into a fellow fibre lover.
Accessibility Level: Easy. This workshop can be accessed online through our Boomerang at Home online feature. This is a video conference experience that can be accessed via Mobile, iPad, and Computer devices.
