I am very excited that we have the lovely Coastal Crochet, aka Eleonora, coming to teach this corchet workshop at Made and Making. You may have seen one of her many published patterns in SImply Crocet Magazine.
Crocheting around pebbles is a fun thing to do! It stretches your crochet skills as you learn to combine a variety of stitches and chains to make endless combinations. And what to use them for? Well, they are lovely as simple decorations around the home making brilliant paper weights or summer tablecloth weights,or in the garden, you can leave them in nature where you found them to spread a little crochet joy. There are so many various styles of covers to be crocheted and you can get braver each time making truly unique pieces.
Eleonora will be sharing five different designs for this workshop and they are covers which should fit pebbles between 9cm and 6cm in diameter. The full written patterns will be yours to take away at the end of the workshop so you’ll be able to crochet around pebbles throughout the summer
This workshop is suitable for advanced beginners. You will need a basic understanding of crochet and be able to do the basic stitches. Eleonora will be happy to guide you through new stitches where needed.
You will need to bring your own yarns and hooks to the workshop. You can bring a variety of yarns and hook sizes to experiment with different results if you wish. Cotton yarns work best for these designs. For the pebbles shown a 4 ply cotton such as ‘Scheepjes Catona’ was used together with a 2.5mm hook. A selection of pebbles will be provided but if you have a special stone that you think you’d like to crochet around then please do bring it along.
This workshop is led by Eleonora.
