Brisbane: Crochet in the round & Granny Squares

Almost finished my little nesting bowls

Following on from the crochet basics meet up, get ready to crochet in the round as part of Saviours of the Lost Arts!

Crocheting in the round is super easy and you can make loads of things from beanies to bowls and baskets, rugs or once you’re on a roll you can cover pebbles, stool covers, beads, anything round!

We’ll take you through increasing to achieve a circle, the base of many projects as well as little pitfalls along the way like what to do when your crochet circle curls up at the edges or goes wavy!

Day off at the tree house :)

Plus learn the best stitch to use depending on the projects you’re embarking on. For those who are ready we’ll go through the magic ring to get you started for an even nicer look to your project.

If you missed crochet basics don’t worry, you’ll pick up crocheting in the round in no time and if there’s time at the end of the meet up we can show you a few extra tips and stitches that were covered at the basics session.

PLUS! Once you’ve got a hang of crochet in the round we’ll end it all off with the basic granny square!

First completed granny square

And if crochet isn't your thing bring along your own craft and enjoy a fun-filled morning in the city. Or if crochet is your thing experience the joy of giving by passing your hooking expertise on to a beginner on the day, the more helpers the better! :)
