|Playing with crochet, yarn and different stitches|
Having not actually run a crochet course before I had to get my thinking cap on as how best to go about it and indeed think of a blanket that would be easy enough for a beginner, challenging for an intermediate and fun and inspiring enough for someone confident in crocheting. The aim of the course therefore would be to inspire the love of crochet. Hope I can do it.
I set to over the Christmas period and played with oddments of yarn and produced a sample of the type of blanket I hope we would be making. Having loved Lucy at Attic 24's Cosy CAL blanket, see
HERE , I felt I was not finished with that stitch and therefore it would make an excellent first stage to the blanket, easy enough for a beginner and interesting enough for anyone else.

Nearly everyone completed four rows on the first night.
