When Craftsy offered me the chance to review one of their online classes I jumped at the chance. I love Craftsy classes. No exaggeration there either. I have taken part in four classes before this one and each one has provided me with valuable skills.
Craftsy is also giving you the chance to win a place in Stacey Trock’s online class, Crocheting in the Round: Mix & Match Hats.

This class is 3 ½ hours long, split into 7 convenient lessons so you can work at your own pace. You will also be able to download written patterns for the Basic Beanie, Earflap Hat, Cloche and Beret.
Throughout this class you will learn how to start crocheting in the round and increase to create the crown of your hat. Stacey also provides instruction for how to check your gauge and why this is important.
Once you have completed the shaping of the hat, Stacey will talk you through adding colourful designs to your hat. You will also learn how to design your own motif and she will talk you through crocheting a heart motif. You will also be shown how to change colours and how to carry the colours behind your work.
When you have mastered the basic beanie, you can then move onto adding earflaps, embellishments and brims. The possibilities are endless with all the different techniques Stacey teaches you.
My favourite part of this online class was learning how to adjust the hat sizes. This is a really useful thing to know. You can take the adult patterns and adjust them to make smaller sizes.
