Chunky crochet bobble hat for improving beginnersThis workshop is a great confidence booster for anyone who has just learned to crochet. We will make a modern chunky bobble hat, suitable for the whole family! You will learn how to choose the right size, follow a pattern, how to keep your edges straight, how to work half treble crochet stitches and how to work in the back/front loops to create texture in your fabric. You will also learn how to neatly seam your crochet for a perfectly finished project. We'll even show you how to make the bobble!
This clever pattern works up quickly with no complicated shaping. Use the same basic pattern to make a matching double thickness cowl, relaxed slouchy cowl, or a fun double-bobble hat. We'll give instructions for all these versions so why not make the whole set once you’ve mastered the technique!This workshop is suitable for anyone who has just learned to crochet and knows how to work either double or treble crochet.4 balls of Scheepjes Stone Washed/River Washed XL yarn in your choice of colour are included in the cost of the workshop but please bring your preferred 6 mm hook.
Chunky Crochet Bobble Hat with Fiona Meade
Born and raised in Ireland, Fiona has been crocheting for most of her life. She gained her love of all things crafty from her multi-talented mother and her grandmother, who owned her own craft shop. After learning the basics, she taught herself to read patterns and hasn't looked back! She loves working with new yarns and trying out new crochet techniques. When not crocheting or looking after her young daughter, Fiona is a geologist, and has spent the last 15 years studying the volcanoes of Ireland, Scotland and beyond! She enjoys teaching as much as she enjoys crocheting itself, and has set up Fiona Meade Crochet to turn her hobby into a small business. You can also find Fiona as FionaMeadeCrochet on Facebook.
