Crochet Classes

Now that I'm starting to dabble in crochet, I'm all signed up for a couple of classes with Irene from Yarn Classes, one of the creative team behind the Pick Up Your Needles workshops that have served the Yarnie Women of Wicklow (and beyond) so well.

Click here for a class schedule. Come along and get hooked!

Next Friday 18th Sept, we'll be in the Yarn Room in Ashford, Co Wicklow having a go at making this lovely hat, just one of Irene's original designs.



Can't help feeling that I'm in on the ground floor of a crochet revolution!

Fair play for trying crochet. The hat looks lovely, perfect for the Autumnal weather. I wish I could grasp crochet, but it seems to be beyond the workings of my feeble brain.
I might have to try again, maybe a New Years Resolution for next year?

love that hat, is it a catherine wheel pattern?

Oooooh, that should be loverly.

I did not know the catherine wheel stitche but I have just looked it up and I can now say that it is a catherine wheel variation. I have worked this stitch much less dense than the traditional catherine wheel.

That's a super hat. I'd feel all twenties and literary wearing it. But alas probably all fumbling and awkward making it.

Nicola Dear, I have this very same hat, same colour and all - it was a present from my other dear friend Eilish... along with a really cool scarf...
