Meet Kim Werker and begin learning how to work in the round with two key methods for making circular shapes: staggered and stacked increases. You’ll see what shape each increase creates, troubleshoot common circular slip-ups and get tips for starting your projects.
Circles & Working Even: Solid Hat (18:50)
Continue practicing by making a simple hat and see the variety of styles you can create. Kim will also explain the simple math of working hats and show you how to get a great fit.
Patterned Crochet in the Round (19:48)
Begin working patterned stitches in the round to add texture to your projects. You’ll discover how to make the versatile V-stitch and learn how to enhance your overall design with increases.
Circles & Shaping: Patterned Beret (23:34)
Move on to another practice project: a patterned beret hat. Kim will share tips for increasing and shaping your beret, decreasing in pattern and adding a sturdy, stylish brim.
Pattern, Color & Edgings: Mandala (22:26)
Find out how to mix patterns and colors to crochet a vibrant mandala. You’ll see how this small project is perfect for trying fun new combinations.
Gussets & Shaping: 3-D Pillows (26:50)
Wrap up class by making a floor pouf and a decorative pillow for your home. The pouf will teach you how to manage thicker yarns and hold in stuffing, while the pillow shows you how a gusset can be used to seam two round halves together.
