Today's Blogpost Is Brought To You By Craftsy & The Number 4
What a whirlwind the last few months have been! Between teaching at events like STITCHES! West, DFW Fiber Fest, and the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Show, we've been preparing for Vogue Knitting LIVE - Pasadena and STITCHES! Midwest... in the midst of all this insanity, Shannon has flown to Denver not once, not twice, but three times... each time to film classes for you! And today we get to announce that Craftsy Crochet Class #4 has launched! WOOHOO!!!
Reading crochet patterns can be tricky, with so many different styles and abbreviations, but with this class I'm here to help you read and work through any pattern. We begin by learning all the ways crochet terms are shown in a pattern, as well as how to actually read and work through one. We show the abbreviation, stitch chart symbol, and my hands making the stitch all at the same time! This is a first for ANY Craftsy class. This "Live Stitch Dictionary" is worth the course alone!
Next, find out how to tell if a pattern has all the information you need to successfully complete it. I'll explain special pattern elements such as stitch repeats, charts and diagrams, and sizing.
Finally, you get to apply your new skills by working the stunning Modern Sampler Scarf pattern included in your class materials - I'm telling you this class has it all!
Reading & Understanding Crochet Patterns is available now! Click on any of the photos in this post or on my special link below to be whisked away to Craftsy and get started right away. You will be reading crochet patterns like a pro today!!
I'm looking forward to seeing you in class. Remember you can always reach me with any questions by clicking the "Ask A Question" button. It's like having me there with you in your home teaching you all you need to know!
