Crochet granny squares in purples and blues, overlay text saying "FAST TRACK CROCHET COURSE for "sort of" beginners

About the Course

I am rerunning my online crochet course for "sort of" beginners, but this time, instead of spreading it over 3 weeks, it'll be all done in one week: Friday-Monday-Thursday.

Boom 💥 3 sessions, 7 days, and you'll have mastered the basics of crochet that may have eluded you in the past.

📧I can only accept people who match certain criteria. Applications are open NOW. Check out the criteria listed below and message me to apply!📧

It will be:
🔹 ONLINE via Zoom
🔹 2-hour sessions (10 till 12 UK time – currently BST)
🔹 on Friday 25 Sept, Monday 28 Sept and Thursday 1 Oct 2020

✨What will you learn?✨
🧶 The name and construction of 6 basic stitches
🧶 How to work straight rows without losing or gaining stitches
🧶 How to start and end a crochet piece
🧶 How to start playing with texture
🧶 How to work in the round
🧶 How to make granny squares
🧶 How to join squares together
🧶 How to read crochet charts
🧶 Plus many essential tips and techniques!

✨How much does it cost?✨
The current cost of this ONLINE course is £40.
Refunds and transfers to a future course are at my discretion only 😉

✨Who is it for?✨
I still cannot take complete beginners yet (but I'm still working on it!), hence the "sort of" in the course name. So I am looking for people who match certain criteria (see below).

⭐⭐⭐Criteria to apply⭐⭐⭐

✅ You must NOT be a complete beginner (i.e. someone who has never picked up a hook before). Sorry if you are, I'm hoping to be able to help you in the near future. However, you can be:
🔹 someone who gave crochet a go with books and/or videos but got stuck and gave up,
🔹 someone who may have crocheted many years ago but has forgotten how it’s done,
🔹 a crocheter who tends to wing it and would like to learn the “proper” techniques and terminology.

✅ You must already own bits and bobs:
🔹 some aran or chunky yarn (non fluffy, in 2 plain, relatively light colours, but not white),
🔹 corresponding crochet hooks (at least 5mm for aran, at least 6mm for chunky – get in touch if you're not sure),
🔹 scissors,
🔹 a yarn needle.

✅ You must have 2 devices available:
🔹 one for you to see what I do (ideally, a computer or tablet),
🔹 one for me to see what you do (ideally, a mobile phone) – you will need something to hold this second device upright(-ish) between your body and your hands (a tumbler or a large mug will do!)

✅ Needless to say... you must have a decent internet connection!

💥 If you are interested and fit the criteria, please MESSAGE ME TO APPLY!💥

✨Not sure this is for you?✨
Does it all sound very technical? Don't let that scare you! We can iron out the details of this setup when we have our individual tech check call a few days before the start of the course.

If you have any doubt about fulfilling the criteria above, please message me so we can talk about it. There may be something I'm not thinking of, and I aim to be able to help as many aspiring crocheters as possible! 😃

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
