What’s it all about?
Have you been crocheting blankets like crazy and want to get going on your first wearable piece? Join us and learn how to crochet a basic jumper from the top down! We’ll learn a little bit about how different jumper pattern are read, the importance of gauge and we’ll get going on our first sweater.
What will we cover?
In this class, we’ll learn:
- How to read patterns and get started on a jumper
- Gauges and why they are important
- DC2tog, FpDC and BpDC stitches
- How to continue and finish at home
- Pattern inspiration
You should already know how to do a slip stitch, single and double crochet. We’ll go through double crochet again but very briefly.
What will you need?
For this class, you’ll need a 9mm hook and 6-7 skeins of a chunky or bulky yarn – 14ply (I used in the example Lion Super Bulky acrylic but you can get wool or others). You only need to have one skein in the class.
