Have you ever felt that the finishing touches to your crochet have slightly let it down? Do your joining stitches show up too much? Are your squares slightly different sizes or your shapes misshapen? Do you wonder what to do to hide the ends of your threads? Would you like to perfect the magic loop caste on? Are you board casting on long foundation chains? Would you like to know how to do the chain and first row in one go? Would you like to add button holes and buttons to your garments?

If the answer to any of these questions is “YES” then this is the 2 hours to revolutionise your crochet products.

This course will solve all of these problems and more. We will cover:

  • How to stiffen crochet to keep its shape
  • How to block crochet to correct and keep its shape
  • Different methods for hiding and securing ends
  • Sewing up
  • Magic Loop caste on
  • Foundation and first row caste on in one go
  • Button holes
