Tapestry Crochet with Claire Montgomerie (Sun)
Sunday 24th September
10am – 12 noon
An introduction to the Tapestry Crochet colourwork technique – the form of crochet colourwork that most resembles a knitted Fair Isle, which allows you to work more than one colour across the a row at once to create patterning. The practice differs from knitted Fair Isle in that it doesn’t have any floats along the back of the work. When not in use, the other threads are simply held inside the fabric. Most often worked in double crochet, this class will cover the basics of creating a simple geometric pattern in double crochet using a bulky yarn. You can simply work samples of the stitch to practice the technique, or work to create a modern wall hanging in striking geometrics.
Kit and goodie bag:
- Tapestry worksheet
- All yarn and notions needed to make the project
- Crochet hook
- A back issue of Inside Crochet magazine
You must be able to at least work the double crochet stitch confidently to attend this class.
(please note the project on the day will be a simpler two colour design)
