Learn Crochet From a Friendly Crochet Teacher - Beginners who want to improve

Ali is a crochet blogger, teacher, and business owner. She started teaching out of her home and now has an online class, a book, and magazine publications.

She is a gem and teaches her students as though they are best friends. You'll love her stop light method of teaching which you'll find in her Book below.

If you are Local (UK) you'll enjoy a class with Ali, tea and cookies included.

Ali is a crochet friend of mine who released this UK version softback and Kindle version last year.

This book is for those who already know the basics but want to stretch themselves by tackling other projects. UK terminology.

Ali released the USA version of her book last year. I had the honor of making this happen. This is in US terminology and comes with the same great patterns and instruction.

You will make a headband, socks, granny squares, and more as you learn to read patterns the Stop light way.

 

How to Make a Tea Cozy

A simple method of making a tea cozy to go with any design is to use the half-double-crochet stitch.

Start out with a chain of 26 - 28 and half-double crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook. Half-double crochet in each stitch across.

Tip: To have a ridge-like design you can crochet in the back loop only. It also makes it stretchier.

Once you have enough rows to cover the front of your Tea pot, chain 4 - 6 stitches and skip about that many (give or take) to make the spout hole. Continue half-double crochets to the end of the row.

For this next row you will half-double crochet across like before only you'll crochet into your chains (for the spout) as you go across.

Complete the second side.

You can choose to finish the cozy in two ways:

1. Add a space for the handle by chaining the necessary stitches (4 - 6) and skipping just like you did for the spout.

2. End off and thread some ribbon in the last row and tie onto your pot.

How to Make an Applique

Crochet any number of shapes. For instance:

Crochet Circles can be made into fruit or faces

Crochet Triangles can be made into trees or noses

Crochet Squares can be made into bodies or presents

Use your imagination and combine all different shapes and sizes into your one-of-a-kind applique.

What do you Enjoy Crocheting Most?

My favorite thing to crochet are hats because they are quick. I am really into quick turnaround projects like scarves and hats. Afghans on the other hand get old pretty fast - funny because that was the first thing I made - a baby blanket for my son.

      @MoiraCrochetsPl: I love little accessories like that too but am afraid I do not have the patience for the tiny work with thread crochet. I do appreciate those who do.

      @MoiraCrochetsPl: Moira, there is a module you can select called 'photo gallery' - you can add up to 10 photos to it. If you need to add more photos just add another module.

      I also added a flickr module and just selected my crochet 2010 set and put that on slide show. Let me know if you need help with this.
