Crochet for Beginners - Discover your 'crojo'



Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet. I am a crochet teacher with over 3 years experience. I will help you start your crochet journey from the very beginning. A patient and friendly teacher, you will come away from the lesson with a new crochet addiction. By using some easy technology, I can offer a lesson, where, as long as you have access to a laptop or tablet with a camera, we can chat and see each other, whilst I talk you through and demonstrate the techniques. I also have an additional camera which will enable you to see my hands and watch how I crochet as we go and work together.

The lessons also include written instructions which I will send you prior to your lesson, for us to reference during the lesson but also for you to refer back to when you are crocheting along on your own!

The following are some examples of beginner modules, however I am happy to be flexible with the lessons and if there is a particular technique you would like support with, we can work on this together.

Current Modules

Hook explanation and holding your hook.
Stitch terminology and the differences between US and UK stitches.

Thanks Donna for a fantastic session, could not believe how fast the time went by, and how patient you were.
It had been many years since I had initially learned to crochet with my grandma teaching me so rusty was an understatement. By the time I had finished with Donna’s session I felt confident and able to crochets several rows with double chain, turn a corner and produce a magic ring. Now onto my project stuffed animal for my granddaughter and then hopefully some more lessons to try something more adventurous items.
Thoroughly enjoyed relearning this skill thanks very much Donna.

A really enjoyable session with Donna, the hour flew by. I had never crocheted before and by the end of the session I was able to make a chain, turn a corner and crochet several rows. Donna demonstrated and explained everything very clearly. Looking forward to practising the skills I have learnt and doing more sessions to learn some new ones. Thanks Donna
