Crochet in the Round Workshop

The first fiber arts workshop I will teach this year takes place in October. I selected crochet in the round because minimal skills are needed to make basic shapes. There are no long chains to work into, no need to turn the work and it is easy to keep track of the number of stitches in each round by using one marker. I am so excited about the patterns I have found in researching for this workshop!

May I present Princess Pigtail and Knight Greyling of Corkshire?

This adorable characters can be crocheted in less than an hour and require only a small amount of yarn. For the princess, I used a wine cork as the filler. The knight is filled with a tall thread spool.

Both patterns are available free. The knight is by LucyRavenscar http://lucyravenscar.blogspot.com/2010/02/cork-and-crochet-knights-ninjas-and.html

The princess is by Tarkheena Crafts: http://tarkheenacrafts.blogspot.com/2014/04/crochet-pattern-princess-fleurette-of.html

Have fun making these little figures!

One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.
