Our improver classes build on the basics, offering a suite of tips and techniques that appear all the time in crochet patterns and will be endlessly useful, whether for toys, blankets, accessories or garments. Together, they include working multiple stitches together, combining basics to make new effects, reading written patterns and charts, working in the round from a centre hole and introducing interesting colour work and high-relief textural techniques such as clustering, dipping, cabling and embossing.Throughout both courses, we will make reference to pattern and chart reading, with the idea that by the time you have completed, you will be better equipped to make sense of any instructions and explore new realms on your own.IMPROVERS 2 Session a
