Craftsy has once again given me the opportunity to review one of their online classes. And given you the opportunity to win a place in it.

The lucky winner will receive a free class access link and be on their way to learning new techniques.

Some of the things I love about Craftsy classes are:

  • They are yours to keep forever, so you can keep on coming back for refreshers.
  • The tutors are experts in what they do, Edie Eckman for example has published many bestselling crochet books. I think she is the perfect choice for teaching this class. You can see how passionate she is about making patterns understandable and accessible to all crocheters. She genuinely wants to teach you and make sure you excel at this craft.
  • The 30 second rewind option! If you miss something the first time, simply click the button and it will take you back to view it again.

In this online video class you will learn techniques to improve the look and quality of your work.

Throughout the lessons Edie will talk you through:

  • How the choice of hook and yarn will affect the look and drape of your crochet fabric
  • How to start working in rows using the foundation single crochet
  • How to work into the turning chain so you don’t accidentally skip or add stitches
  • Tips on how to decipher crochet patterns
  • How to measure gauge
  • How to achieve professional quality edgings
  • Tips on how to do seamless colour changes
  • Finishing techniques e.g blocking

And much more.
