Next-Step Crochet - Granny Squares Workshop
Take the traditional Granny Square, and make it next level.
How can somebody possibly improve on the humble granny? Add puff stitches and cluster stitches, of course!
On the day, you will receive the kit to make a lap blanket in the colourway of your choosing.
Note: The colours may vary from what you see on your screen.
Choose between acrylic (£40), cotton (£50) and a cashmere/merino blend (£75) for your final blanket. The price difference is indicative of the difference in price of the materials. Acrylic is cheaper than both cotton and cashmere/merino.
Next-Level Crochet is aimed at those who know and understand the basics of crochet. If you are a complete beginner, I suggest that you check out my Granny Squares for Beginner's Course instead!
