Crochet is one of the simplest yarn crafts. Using nothing more than a hook and a ball of wool, you can create anything from a simple blanket to intricate lace. Perhaps the best place to start is with a granny square, so that’s what we’ll be making on this beginners crochet workshop. You’ll learn some basic stitches, learn the difference between British and US terminology, as well as how to read a crochet pattern and there will be plenty of time to practice. Plus you will be able to see examples of items that you can make with your newly acquired skill.
