Add a little sunshine to your living space with some handmade rainbow-themed décor! This fun class was designed with beginners in mind, but seasoned crocheters will also love following these straight-forward patterns to create something fresh for their home. Brenda’s favorite way to teach is to “learn by doing”. Learn how to crochet as you make two adorable projects for your home: the Rainbow Wall-Hanging and Rainbow Pillow. Follow along with Brenda as she demonstrates all the skills you need to make these beautiful accent pieces!
The first project you’ll make is a gorgeous Macramé-inspired wall hanging! Have some fun constructing this creative, rainbow-themed wall hanging using only very basic stitches and a bit of easy sewing. This is the perfect project for learning how to crochet, but more advanced crocheters will appreciate the easy construction method and the striking results!
After learning the basics, you will be ready to move on to the Rainbow Pillow. This deceptively simple project will build on the skills that you’ve already learned as you learn how to shape your crochet using increases. You will also gain skills for creating amigurumi (toy) projects such as crocheting a firm fabric, sewing pieces together, and adding stuffing evenly.
With over two and a half hours of clear video instruction, Brenda will lead you through every step of each of these projects so that you can successfully complete this cheerful set! By the end of the class, you will have learned the following skills: understanding gauge, how to choose the appropriate yarn, basic pattern reading, working single crochet stitches in turned rows, simple increases, basic amigurumi skills, adding structure to your 3-D project, sewing skills for crochet and more.
