About This Class

Learn the basics of Crochet with this beginner intensive class. Crochet designer Ashlyn Holmes shares how you can get started crocheting with easy to follow instructions and a fun beginner friendly project. Over the course of this class you will learn and become familiar with the basic materials needed for crochet, tips on how to read a crochet pattern, how to get started on a crochet project, three basic crochet stitches, working in the round, finishing techniques, and tons of tips and tricks to help you along the way. By the end of the class, you will have created a sweet little oven mitt designed to give you practice using stitches and techniques learned in the class and the skills to tackle many more crochet projects.  You'll be hooked in no time!

*Please take note that this class uses US terminology, which is a bit different than UK terminology. When crocheting from a particular pattern, it is important to take notice of the terminology being used. I have added a link to a conversion chart for terminology in the resources section.

Hello! I am a crochet designer and fiber enthusiast based in southern Louisiana. I also have a career as an environmental scientist and live in a tiny farm house with my husband and two pups. When I'm not dabbling in textile crafts, you can find me in the garden, cooking up supper for my family, antique shopping, or watching The Office series for the bazillionth time.
