Exploring shapes in Crochet

exploring shapes in crochet workshop

Have you ever seen a crochet chart or diagram? Not sure what all those symbols mean? The aim of this crochet workshop is to introduce you to international crochet symbols and show you how to follow a crochet chart as well as a written pattern. Simple seaside shapes will be crocheted with step by step instructions provided in both a written pattern format as well as a crochet chart using international symbols. In being able to follow international crochet symbols, patterns become truly international, which is particularly helpful if you come across patterns from other countries which you’d like to make. Japanese crochet books are increasingly popular and they often use charts.

By the end of the workshop, as well as having gained confidence in being able to take on written patterns and crochet charts, you will have crocheted lots of seaside shapes which can be used as decorations, changed into coasters or sewn onto garments or cushions.
