A Crochet Success Story

The nicest thing about teaching is when you see a beginner come back with their first finished project. It’s fair to say M struggled to pick up the crochet basics and we spent a lot of time after her initial learn to crochet class (taught by the fabulous Sarah Hazell) getting this crochet cushion off the hook!

M is deservedly proud of her first cushion cover and I’m delighted she has immediately bought yarn for her next project. You could say she’s well and truly “hooked”.  My work, as they say is done.

Happy making to M and all of you who are new to the art of crochet!

  1. Hi Tracy
    I am just getting into crochet I can hold the hook and do simple stitches and have just done some granny squares but I would love to be able to go onto the next level and learn some new stitches and follow patterns. I wondered if I could book in with you for some tuition.



  2. It is great when people get the bug! I would be really proud of this and I have made several things!

    That’s a beautiful cushion Tracey – you friend must be proud (and you too). Some people pick crochet up really easily and some have to work a bit harder at it, but in the end, the hard work pays off, with the production of a fab finished project. Keep up the good work, we’ll have the world hooked on crochet before we know it …….. Lynne
