Meet crochet designer Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby and learn more about the techniques you'll master. Shannon explains how to use your class: Watch it all the way through or skip to the skills you want to reference whenever you need a refresher!
A strong beginning leads to great results! Shannon demonstrates how to cast on without leaving an unsightly knot in your work, whether you're starting with a chain or in the round. That means fewer ends to weave in! You'll also review the qualities of a good pattern so you can select for success.
If you make a crocheted garment whose fit is important, you'll want to swatch first and check your gauge. Shannon explains how to "read" your swatch and do some simple calculations to determine whether your needle is the right size for your project and how much yarn you'll need.
