Overview

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.
