Crochet scarf – Learn to Read a Crochet Chart with Fiona Morris
Fri 9th August 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Crochet patterns and stitch instructions can be quite complicated to read and depending on where the pattern has been published there may be confusion over the abbreviations used in the instruction (American v British patterns). More and more crochet patterns are also now being produced with Crochet Chart.
Unlike the abbreviations, there is a more or less universal set of Crochet Symbols. Once you have learnt to understand the symbol you will be able to work from charts produced in all sorts of different countries from UK and America to Russia or Japan.
In this workshop you will learn some of the basic symbols and how to read them within a charted pattern and will start making the Anesha Lace Scarf. The scarf uses a variety of crochet stitches.
Attendees should have a basic knowledge of crochet and be able to work a foundation chain, double and treble crochet stitches.
You will need:
– 150g to 200g chunky or super chunky yarn. (It is easier to work with a light coloured smooth yarn.)
– A 7mm or 8mm hook for chunky yarn or a 12mm hook for super chunky
– Understanding crochet chart symbols
– Following a chart for flat crochet
-Working a foundation chain
-Working a variety of crochet stitches including cluster stitches
-Joining to an existing piece of crochet.
