Want to be more confident at crocheting?
Crochet for improvers
You’ve learnt the basic stitches such as double and treble crochet. You’ve tried a traditional granny square. Or maybe you completed How to crochet for beginners with Nicki. Maybe you’ve looked at some crochet patterns, but don’t know what to try next. Nicki will show you how to use combinations of the basic stitches to make a variety of simple projects such as different granny squares, circular containers and flowers. She’ll also help you to understand crochet abbreviations and written instructions as well as crochet symbols and crochet charts. After finishing the How to Crochet for Improvers course you’ll be ready to try out other patterns.
