North London Crochet Class

Learn Tunisian Crochet in this friendly crochet class in North London. Tunisian crochet (also known as Afghan crochet) uses a combination of knitting and crochet techniques and makes a dense and squishy fabric with a beautiful texture. This workshop is suitable for those who have never tried this technique before but have 'ordinary' basic crochet skills.

Tunisian crochet is also called 'knitting crochet' as you have to cast on all the stitches of a row. This type of crochet is distinguished by the long elongated Afghan hook used. With crocheting, you are often turning your working at the end of the row to continue with the pattern but in Tunisian you are only working on one side with forward and back passes. Problem solved if you suffer from wobbly edges with double or treble crochet as this style gives the cleanest, most even edges you've ever seen.

In this class you will learn:

- how to cast on

- working the simple stitch using forward and back passes

- joining in colours

- working in colour stripes

- working in two-tone stripes

- casting off

- finishing techniques

We will be working up a small sample which will enable you to use this stitch in whichever project you like when you get home.

LEVEL: Intermediate, must be able to work double crochet and treble crochet

DURATION: 2 hours

DATE & TIME - Saturday 29th June, 10.30-12.30

DURATION - 2 hours total tuition

COST - £45 total (includes Tunisian crochet hook and some wool to work with)

LOCATION: Firs Farm Community Hub, Firs Farm Playing Fields, Firs Lane, London N21 2PJ
