Crochet to Corner (C2C) Workshop

Black Sheep Wools, Warrington ~ Friday 12th April, 2019 ~ 9.30am-12.30pm

Corner to Corner crochet is a popular technique to make a square or rectangle,

starting in one corner, increasing along each row and then decreasing to the

opposite corner. Each row is made by creating a number of tiles (made from

3ch and 3tr) and a rectangle can also be created by maintaining the same

number of tiles across the centre section. Colourwork can create stripes,

blocks or pictures. Perfect for blankets and accessories.
Students will learn the basics of Corner 2 Corner stitch, increasing, working

straight, decreasing and changing colour.

Crochet Finishing Workshop

Black Sheep Wools, Warrington ~ Friday 12th April, 2019 ~ 1.15pm-4.15pm

Sometimes a pattern doesn’t specify how to sew crochet pieces together.

Treble stitches and lace patterns are particularly tricky to join.

We will look at how to join:

  •  Row-ends (using whip stitch/slip stitch/double crochet/

            adding a border of double crochet)

  •  First and last rows or squares (i.e. stitch to stitch)

  •  3D pieces (i.e. amigurumi)

  •  Granny squares – join as you go.

Demos and discussions will also include:

  •  A blocking demonstration

  •  Edging your projects

  •  Weaving in your ends (as you go/at the end)
