Mystical Lanterns with Jane Crowfoot
22nd February 2pm-5pm
Come along and have a go at making Jane’s popular ‘Mystical Lantern’ crochet motif.
This is a fun workshop with the aim of helping participants with their colour choices and basic crochet techniques. Participants will learn how to read a basic crochet pattern and will be given the chance to learn how to work from a chart.
Level/Ability: Aimed at participants who have a basic knowledge of crochet skills and have already learnt most stitches and techniques.
Notes, any additional info, what do people need to bring?
Yarn will be provided, but as the Mystical Lantern motif is such a great stash buster participants are more than welcome to bring their own choices of yarns (preferably 4 ply or DK weight yarn).Participants will also need to bring along a selection of crochet hook sizes and a notebook and pen/pencil. A small sewing kit including scissors, a knitters sewing needle, and a fine sewing needle and thread is also required.
