Textured Squares Afghan Crochet Course - (Session 5 of 5) 2pm - 3.30pm

Textured Squares Afghan Crochet


Create a beautiful textured blanket with this 5 session crochet course. The sessions are spread over several weeks, giving you time in between to make your textured squares at your own pace, and the quantity depending on the size of the blanket you wish to create.

You need to attend at least session 1, session 2, and/or session 3 to be able to create a textured square afghan, preferably all. The more sessions you attend, the more stitch variations your finished blanket will contain.

Over the course of the entire series, you will be taught six individual crochet stitches, and follow along with a pattern for each square with an expert tutor (sessions 1, 2, and 3). The penultimate session (session 4) will show you how to bring them all together to make a wonderful handmade afghan style blanket, and then the final session (session 5) will involve creating a border around your finished piece.

You will pick up useful tips and tricks that you can apply to your crochet projects in general, and be taught properly with an experienced crochet tutor of nearly ten years.

You need to be confident in creating foundation chains and basic crochet stitches, such as the single crochet (sc) and the double crochet (dc) - US terms. All other stitch variations will be taught and demonstrated live online.

I really found this a great way to start crochet. Emma was very experienced in showing you the way to start, very calm and patient And set her camera up to show her hands and work, so we could see clearly what she was explaining. She also videoed part of it and sent it to us, so we can try it and have the tuition on hand. So great value.

Response from Oh So Pretty And Clever:

Hi Toni, I'm glad you got the most from your workshop and I hope you will join me for the next level and future crochet-along courses. Thanks for your review, Emma

The teaching Emma gave was clear even tho' it took me a bit to get used to handling the yarn. Emma was most patient when dealing with my errors and we to yo the end of the beginners course in the time available.

My first time picking up a crochet needle and Emma's class really put me at ease and taught me exactly what I wanted to begin with. Thank you

Alison B - - #31989

I’d been given a lot of crochet stuff for Christmas and a book, but I found it really difficult to understand the mechanics of the stitches from static diagrams. Emma’s 2 hour beginner class over Zoom was perfect to get me up and running with all the basic stitches I need to start with crochet. The camera angle was perfect to see what was being done, and Emma repeated demonstrations when I didn’t quite get them the first time. She also provided some helpful materials as a reminder after the class. Definitely recommended.

Response from Oh So Pretty And Clever:

I am so pleased you enjoyed your workshop Alison. I look forward to seeing you again soon on the next level. Happy hooking!

Excellent course. I had done some crochet as a child but had forgotten what to do. Emma explained everything very clearly and using good camera angles. She looked after everyone on the course and made sure we all got to the same place. Very pleased that I took part.

I’ve attempted crochet before on more than 1 occasion and not got my head around it. 2 hours with Emma and the basics have fallen into place! Emma was very clear, friendly and very patient. Great course and I’m glad I’ve finally started my hooking journey! 😊

Response from Oh So Pretty And Clever:

Thank you Zoe, I’m so glad I was able to start you on your crochet journey. It will soon become an obsession believe me! Thanks again, Emma
