Intro to Crochet Workshop - Granny Squares
Own one crochet hook but wondering if you need a second one to make something?!
Love those Granny squares but don’t know where to start?
Used to Crochet when you were 8 years old but have never managed to get back into it?
This course will help with all those things and more. Starting with the basics of how to hold the hook and yarn, moving onto the foundation of a Granny square and then just letting it grow until you reach the size of a dish or wash cloth.
If you don’t get to complete the cloth to the size you would like by the end of the session, you will have instructions and a hook to take home with you to finish.
We will also talk about different crochet terms, hooks and yarns- for the cloths we will be using a yarn made from recycled Denim.
The answer is ‘No’ by the way, just one hook will do the job, that’s why it’s better than knitting!

About your Tutor:
Your Tutor Zarah Meherali has been playing with yarn for years, she began with simply drooling over yarn and eventually plucked up the courage to grab a hook and begin her journey from making giant tangles to making items that were both useful and attractive.
Zarah prefers to work in natural fibres with low environmental impact and carefully sources her yarn from ethical and local suppliers where possible.
These days Zarah is having a bit of a hat phase and sells her Historically and Anatomically inaccurate hats via her online shop ‘Made by Zee’ on Numonday.
