"And we're live in 3... 2... 1... GO!"
Yup… my new Craftsy crochet class is LIVE! WOOHOO!!!
We are thrilled to announce that you can now have unlimited access to my new Craftsy crochet class: Crochet Technique Toolkit. This class is full of tips and techniques you can use daily to make your crochet totally AH-MAY-ZING!
My goal with this class was to pack into it as much of the information I wish I had when I was first starting out as well as the skills and techniques we have developed for use every day right here in the Shibaguyz Designz studio. I present techniques like getting started without using a slipknot, 4 different Foundation Stitches (including our Foundation Slip Stitch) to make your starting rows arrow straight, 9 types of decreasing (count them... NINE), ways to make your colorwork look sharp and crisp, and finishing up with with a little world class finishing and seaming. There are sections on evaluating patterns too, and even a step-by-step worksheet for how to estimate yarn amounts.
Here's the great part: Because Crochet Technique Toolkit is a reference class, it is presented in a way that you can find and go directly to any section you want to watch without having to fast forward through other material. Finishing a garment and want to see how we do the Locking Mattress Stitch to give our samples a polished seam? How about our special End Cap Finishing Stitch for invisible finishing? Just click on that section in the class video menu and away you go. In addition, you also receive written instructions for techniques and patterns for the swatches I use in class so you can practice your new skills!
