Have you ever been drawn to beautiful crochet blankets on the internet? Not to mention the handbags, pillows, placemats, scarves, and cardigans. Many of them are made with granny squares or granny square variations. It’s unbelievable just how many designs can be made with such a simple pattern.
Coming to the School next month, join us for more crochet fun at the Granny Squares course taught by Charlotte Lee. This course covers starting in rounds, crocheting the basic square pattern, changing colours, and how to piece together to make larger projects. The lessons are based on the foundational techniques that Charlotte covers in Crochet Basics, so if you’re new to crochet, we suggest starting with this beginner content first.
Now available at the Granny Squares page, you can find the materials list so you can get all of your crochet supplies ready for the course launch on April 20th!
How to Work a Tubular Cast On // Tabetha Hedrick
The tubular cast on is an invisible cast on that’s great for hems, cuffs, and ribbing edges where you want to have a bit of elasticity. It creates a super stretchy and beautiful edging for your knit pieces, and in Tabetha Hedrick’s new How to Work a Tubular Cast On post, you can find a step-by-step tutorial on how to work these cast on stitches!
The Full Spectrum Lecture // Laura Fry
Thank to everyone who joined us on Zoom last week for The Full Spectrum Live Lecture with Laura Fry!
