Beginners Crochet LIVE | Rolled Rose Brooch Workshop
Posted by Helensburgh Art Hub
With the help of ZOOM you'll be able to crochet-a-long in the comfort and safety of your own home.
These rolled roses are the perfect introduction to the basics of crocheting in rows. In just one rose you'll learn how to chain, single, half double and double crochet and once completed we'll make it into a mini brooch. Who would've thought you could pack so much into one wee flower!
This workshop takes place online so you will need to have internet access and the materials listed below to hand. It's suitable for beginners, anyone who needs to brush up on their crochet skills, or if you just fancy having a go.
What you'll need to craft along. . .
the pattern (this will be emailed before the workshop)
a crochet hook (I'll be using a 3.0mm hook)
suitable yarn in a colour for the rose and a colour for the leaf (I'll be using Stylecraft Carnival Tweed Chunky. I would recommend using something thicker than normally recommended for the crochet hook you have, but we'll work with whatever you have to hand.)
a big eye needle
a 25mm brooch sew in brooch back (this can be added later if you don't happen to have one)
a cup of tea and a biscuit (I'll be having Darjeeling and a chocolate ginger crunch!)
Optional extra. . .
If you are local (Helensburgh or Cardross) we can provide a kit with everything you'll need to complete this project. It will include the yarn I will be using, a 3.0mm hook, a brooch back and a big eye needle.
You have 2 colour options to choose from:
1. Pageant (purple/blue/violet variation) - top
2. Jambouree (pink/green/yellow variation) - bottom
Note that this is a colour effect yarn and we cannot guarantee which variation of colours you will receive.
Kits are £5.00 and will be delivered to your doorstep ahead of the workshop. Send us a pm via facebook with your colour choice and address details by the Wednesday before the workshop date. Payment is by bank transfer.
Taking this workshop is Sharon Goodwin from Sew Silly Lily, a graduate of Glasgow School of Art with a lifelong passion for textiles, craft and design.
