More crochet workshops now available!

We're adding two more workshops - Crochet Shawl, 3 Ways and Crochet Bunting.

These are both half day workshops and are on Sunday 5th November.

Both these workshops are great for your next steps in crochet.  If you are a beginner crocheter then please check out our Learn to Crochet workshop on 3rd September!

Crochet Shawl, 3 Ways

In our Crochet Shawl, 3 Ways workshop we discuss shawl-shaping and make a start on simple shawl.

Choose from one of three pattern starts and make a beautiful, wearable accessory using one ball (100g) of sock yarn. Techniques covered include how to read a crochet pattern, increasing and decreasing, plus tips and techniques for future projects.

Crochet Bunting

In our Crochet Bunting workshop you'll make bunting and flowers to decorate it.  So you'll learn how to read a crochet pattern, how to increase and decrease, as well as creating 3D shapes.

Individually each workshop is £35 but book both workshops and pay £60, all materials included and get a 15% discount on all full price shop purchases on the day.

Check out our workshop page for more details

Rico Melange Chunky now in DK too!

Rico Melange Chunky
Simple Cowl, Shades of Wicklow, Caponcho, Ribbed Cardigan

Rico Melange Chunky is one of our most popular yarns, with its soft touch, long colour repeats and choice of vivid or muted shades, its great for garments and accessories.  Up until now its just been available in a chunky weight but now we stock a lighter weight version too!

With a whopping 200m on a 50g ball and 5 shades in stock, we think Melange DK  will be a winner too...
