Tunisian Crochet Entrelac, with Abbey Bongers
This workshop will have the same content as the workshop at the Guild Gathering earlier this year, including course notes. Participants are required to have a good understanding of Tunisian crochet, specifically: forward and return passes,anatomy of a chain, UK double crochet, Tunisian simple stitch.
This entrelac is a bit different to standard entrelac as its basis is for garments rather than homewares like blankets. Once these skills are learned you will be able to tackle any pattern in Abbeymade’s Tessellate Me series.
Materials: 6mm Tunisian hook (can use a standard crochet hook for entrelac), any 8 ply yarn.
Date: Saturday 11th September - 10.00 am

Stay tuned to hear more about yarn tours when travel restrictions are lifted.
