Brisbane: Crochet Basics

Crochet on a train

Learn everything you need to know to crochet like a pro!

We'll cover chain stitch, single and double crochet/treble as well as some basic crochet definitions to keep you on track when you go home. If you already know your stitches but would like to learn to crochet in the round or make a granny square come along and we'll get you started!

By the end of this two hour session you'll be well on your way to hooking up a wash cloth and/or a pretty flower. This is a great session for beginners to get a handle on all the basics before tackling some of the slightly more advanced crochet meet ups later in the year. 

And if crochet isn't your thing bring along your own craft and enjoy a beautiful morning at Mt Coot-tha. Or if crochet is your thing experience the joy of giving by passing your hooking expertise on to a beginner :)

Meet up details

When: Sunday 17 March, 10:30am-12:30pm

Where: Mt Coot-tha Library, Botanic Gardens, Mt Coot-tha Road, Mt Coot-tha

What to bring:
A crochet hook (size 4.5 or 5)
8 ply yarn 
NB: As always there will be a number of hooks and yarn available to use if you would prefer to try before you buy :)
