Crochet Slippers Workshop
We are going to be making a gorgeous pair of 100% wool slippers, that would be the perfect treat for your own feet this January, or would make a lovely gift for a lucky friend! The slippers have been designed by Drops Design and are made from DROPS Karisma (although this could be substituted by any dk yarn). During the workshop you will hone your current crochet skills, increase your technical expertise and improve your pattern reading, whilst having fun working with on the same project with fellow crochet fans.
The Slipper Workshop is aimed at beginner + crocheters; you will need to be familiar with basic crochet stitches (dc, htr, tr) and have some knowledge of increasing and decreasing stitches (although this will be reviewed).
Across the three sessions we will work through the pattern together focusing on the following skills:
- magic ring
- working in concentric circles
- changing directions
- changing colour
- interpreting patterns
- planning increases
- working back and forth ( keeping edges straight)
- planning decreases
Towards the end of the course there will also be an opportunity to look at baby slipper patterns too.
The Crochet Slippers Workshop price includes:
- three, 2 hour crochet tutorial sessions at Stitch Studio, with refreshments,
- crochet patterns
- crochet help sheets
You will also need to bring along:
- 8mm crochet hook
- stitch markers
- small scissors
- knitters/darning needle
- 4 balls DROPS Karisma* (discounted slipper packs are available if you book on the course £6.50, RRP £8. A large range of yarn colours will be available to choose from at the Studio).
*If you would like to provide your own yarn, you will need to bring 4 balls of dk yarn in four different colours (at least 100m of each colour).
