Mistakes happen to every crocheter but every crocheter can fix those mistakes! Join instructor and designer Andi Smith for crochet help and learn how to make any mistake disappear, one simple step at a time. During class, you'll learn how to avoid mistakes, which mistakes are worth fixing and how to fix those that are. Andi will begin by teaching you how to decrease mistakes through proper planning. Then, follow along as she guides you through patterns and charts so you can easily make sense of the abbreviations and symbols. When you're comfortable with charts, you'll improve your understanding of gauge to minimize mistakes, conquer easy methods for avoiding common snafus and find out how to plan your fixes. Plus, you'll see how to re-crochet holes and crochet patches for those fixes that are just too big.
Want to save your crochet stitches? Meet expert Andi Smith, who is going to show you how to make quick fixes and full repairs as well as how to avoid common mistakes. First, learn how Andi organizes her work space and tools and uses a worksheet to keep track of projects. Good preparation is key!
Take an in-depth look at patterns and charts and learn how to decipher the information. Andi walks you through reading a sample pattern for a simple granny square. Get to know the words and symbols used in patterns and then take a look at the visual representation of those words in a chart!
Having a grasp of basic crochet knowledge will make you a better troubleshooter, so one more important lesson on Andi's favorite subject: Gauge. Understand gauge and learn how to create a gauge swatch, then calculate the gauge on a project; even your hook angle makes a difference.
