Bespoke Crochet For Beginners
“I had a one to one class with Jenny to learn to crochet. It was amazing, Jenny is very knowledgeable and is happy to show you whatever you need. She is very patient no matter how long it takes for you too understand the process. I wanted to know how to crochet squares, she showed me how to make them and advised me to try doing a little bit of crochet every day so that I don’t forget what I learned. I can’t thank her enough for her patience it was a very enjoyable class and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to crochet. “

Crochet for Beginners

You can get together with like-minded knitters and crochetiers, from beginners to experts. You can order wool from us in advance, or bring your own. Jenny will be on hand to offer tips and to take wool orders to collect from either the Knit Knack Shack or All Good Bookshop next session.
