The name Edie Eckman should be familiar to you - not only is she the author of several great crochet books, including The Crochet Answer Book, she's also the author of Christmas Crochet - which I featured here on Moogly! And now she's also taught a class on Craftsy - Improve Your Crochet: Essential Techniques! So you can learn right from Edie herself! Bonus... right now you can enroll in Improve Your Crochet on Craftsy for 57% off! But read on to see what all is included...
In Improve Your Crochet: Essential Techniques, Edie covers drape, foundation stitches, keeping edges straight, reading complicated pattern instructions, diagrams, gauge, edgings, and more! All the way to blocking your finished items.
Which makes this the perfect class for a crocheter who's been crocheting for a little while, and has the basics down - but is ready to improve their skills and really take their crochet to the next level! Improve Your Crochet includes dozens and dozens of tips, hints, tricks, and tidbits that will improve anyone's crochet techniques.
The techniques in this class might seem to jump around a bit - but each lesson is jam packed with great info. And the printable materials include a wealth of great stuff too! A full eight pages of crochet knowledge.
I really like the way Edie walks through reading the more complicated patterns. When you get multiple repeats within the same row or round, you can end up with asterisks, brackets, parenthesis... all nested together. But Edie covers it in the class, and lays it all out. And she explains gauge - and why it's important - so well!
Edie's tips in Improve Your Crochet really are a great way to round out any little gaps in your crochet skill set. She connects all the little dots, including how to read stitch dictionaries - which opens up a world of customization and design possibilities! You'll not only be better prepared for your next project - you'll be able to use these tips to make it easier and more fun! I even had to play along:
