Saltire colours

A German friend saw some hexagons on my Facebook page, and asked me if I could make them into coasters using blue and white Scottish colours. So here they are, ready to go off to Germany after Bonfest.


TUNISIAN CROCHET WORKSHOPS COMING THIS SUMMER

There has been a massive upsurge in interest in Tunisian Crochet this year.  So in response to requests to teach it I am currently setting up workshops in June and July to pass on this skill. 

Tunisian crochet is sometimes called Afghan Crochet or Tricot.  It is easy to learn, and you don’t need any prior knowledge of crochet to start. 

I will post details as soon as each workshop is finalised.  Please watch this space for information!

Here are some examples of how to turn a small piece of work into a pretty bracelet.  

 


ALYTH CREATES 24-26 MAY – FUN WITH FREESTYLE CROCHET

ALYTH CREATES

 

Crochet is a wonderful pliable way to work with yarn.
I will be in Alyth Town Hall over the weekend demonstrating some tips for getting started.
Here is a wee example.  I wasn’t terribly impressed with this motif and initially laid it aside.  I then decided to add some surface crochet and changed the look entirely!

Freestyle Tweed effect double fan shawlette

I need to work out what I did here and write it down! It’s a variation on the pattern I made up for the red shawlette.
