Learn to Crochet

I regularly teach beginner, intermediate and advanced classes . They sell out quickly, so do get in touch if you want to be informed of new dates when they are released sign up for my newsletter (or keep an eye on my Facebook page). If you are interested in booking me to teach a class at your venue or event, please use the contact form below.

I use standard UK crochet abbreviations, you can find a full list of UK terms here;

I rarely  make step by step photos of my designs as you’ll find plenty of step by step instructions in my books. Nor do I make crochet videos – there are already some fantastic ones online. Here are some links to videos that some of my pupils find useful and which use the same terminology and techniques you’ll learn in my classes. You can find some excellent videos and photo tutorials on the Love Crochet website.


How to crochet into a ring with Toft.

Crochet in the round with Toft.

Some patterns will ask you to make 2ch and then work the first round into the “second ch from the hk” (Sparkles Mouse and Sofia Bunny have his instruction). Here’s how to do it. Yes, another wonderfully simple Toft video.

You can find the complete directory of Toft videos here, also look out for Kerry Lord on Create and Craft TV every other Friday, she often shares techniques and tips for making her designs and they’re very easy to follow – and what could be better than an hour in front of the TV watching crochet – except for actual crocheting! I often set the recorder so I can catch up later.
