Have you always wanted to crochet but find it intimidating to start?
Nods, Nadia (my assistant) did too until she met Irish crochet designer and teacher Aoibhe Ni. After one, 30-minute lesson she was hooked (pun intended) and has been a fan of Aoibhe's work ever since.
As part of our Starter Series, we asked Aoibhe to share her signature style along with all the tips, techniques, and troubleshooting you would need to go from 'never held a hook' to 'crocheting like a pro'. What she delivered was this beautiful, all-encompassing crochet course that leaves no one left behind.
Wondering what's inside?
This Zero to Crochet course uses a series of guided projects taking a calm approach to building the foundatons you need before moving on to the next level. You'll start by learning how to choose a hook that's right for you, learning about ball bands and mastering the chain stitch.
Then it's time to start on project one a fingerless mitt pattern in single crochet that will have you wondering why you've never tried crochet before!
From here you'll learn how to work in the round before taking on crochet increases by creating this stunning ruffley flower. Makers love these as accessories or to create stunning crochet bouquets that last forever.
Finally, we move on together to the well loved granny square!
You might raise your eyebrow but the granny square is the basis of many a crochet shawl or blanket. Master this and your next crochet project could be a beautiful shawl in complimentary colours or a cosy throw to keep you warm on cold winter days.
As an extra bonus Aoibhe has included her professional finishing approach to projects so you can finish you projects with confidence along with videos on:
- Tension Theory
- Losing Stitches
- Gaining Stitches
- Too many loops on your hook
- Rows and rounds
- Picot Edging and more!
All patterns are included with the course and Aoibhe is available to answer any questions you might have along the way so you should never feel unable to finish a project.
