Meet crochet designer Shannon Leigh Roudhán and begin by learning how to evaluate a pattern for skill level, schematics and gauge, and determine which materials and tools you need. Then, compare both a garment and accessory pattern to spot their similarities and differences.
Understanding Pattern Anatomy (13:05)
Using a well-written pattern, take a closer look at pattern anatomy to understand if it’s the right one for your skills and wishes. Next, find out how to interpret stitch-specific information in the pattern.
Abbreviations & Symbols (18:31)
Ready to get into the details of a pattern? Shannon will explain the types of common and uncommon crochet stitches you may find, as well as other directions you could encounter in a pattern.
Understanding Critical Pattern Elements (22:43)
Dive back into the pattern and look at the most important elements such as stitch repeats, charts and sizing. You’ll also learn how your gauge swatch is a great final check of your pattern.
See It, Make It: The Modern Sampler Scarf (22:49)
Walk through the pattern included in your class materials, testing everything you’ve learned so far. Then, use your new crochet pattern confidence to make the fabulous Modern Sampler Scarf.
Finishing & Assembly (18:41)
Wrap up the class by completing the Modern Sampler Scarf class project alongside Shannon. Get tips for blocking the pieces, as well as Shannon’s favorite techniques for seaming.
