Recently I took a great Craftsy class, and I think it's just perfect for the beginner crocheter, or someone who is returning to crochet after a long absence. You can purchase it on Craftsy of course, and it's totally worth it - but today, I'm going to tell you how you can Win the Craftsy Crochet: Basics and Beyond Class for free!
Like all Craftsy Classes, when you buy Crochet: Basics and Beyond it's available to watch any time, at your own pace, and you have access for, well, ever! And it includes instructor feedback and answers to your questions, as well as a community of other students to interact with!
Speaking of the instructor, this class is taught by the fantastic Kim Werker. Kim is a wonderful teacher, very likeable and encouraging, and just plain fun to watch! And she knows her stuff - she's the founder of CrochetMe.com, former editor of Interweave Crochet magazine, and author of 6 crochet books! She works at just the right pace for those learning along with her, and she has sprinkled the class full of fantastic tips and tricks every crocheter can use!
Crochet: Basics and Beyond includes downloadable instructions, abbreviations guides, supply lists, 8 HD videos, and an exclusive granny square blanket pattern. I even had fun following along and making some of the blanket pattern myself! I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Hoyas:
In Crochet: Basics and Beyond, Kim walks you through every step you need to learn to crochet, including not just the basic stitches, but how to work in rows and rounds, how to read patterns, and how to read crochet symbol charts. She covers colorwork, changing yarns, frogging (aka ripping out your work), increasing, decreasing, ripple patterns, and more!
And perhaps the best parts are the troubleshooting segments. In Crochet: Basics and Beyond, Kim covers all the typical troubles new crocheters run into. Twisting chains, uneven sides, losing and gaining stitches, you name it! She covered everything I could think of, and if you have a problem she hasn't covered, she's right there ready to help you out.
This class is getting great reviews - in addition to this one - with 70+ reviews and a 5 star rating!
