In this session, Brenda introduces you to the two adorable designs that are included in this class: the Rainbow Wall Hanging and Rainbow Pillow. Brenda discusses all the skills that you will learn in this class including how to single crochet and how to work slip stitches, the purpose and importance of making a gauge swatch, how to choose appropriate materials, and basic sewing skills for crocheters.
Brenda discusses the type of yarn needed for these projects. She talks about the thickness of the yarn, the fiber content, and the feel of it so that you know what to look for if you are looking for a substitution for the yarn listed in the pattern. Brenda walks us through the list of the materials that are used to create the projects in this class. She discusses the meaning and importance of gauge and how that will determine the hook size needed.
In session 3, Brenda shows us how to make a gauge swatch and explains how to use it to determine the hook size you should use. She discusses different ways to hold your hook and yarn and demonstrates how to make all the rectangular strips that make up this wall hanging using two basic stitches.
Brenda demonstrates all the steps and skills needed to assemble the Rainbow Wall-Hanging. You will learn how to prep the rope, and how to sew the crocheted pieces around the rope, as well as how to connect all the pieces together. Brenda shows us how to use a simple wooden ruler to give this project the necessary structure.
In this lesson Brenda shows us how to create all the pieces needed to make the pillow. She demonstrates how to make increases and shows us how they are used to create a curved shape. Brenda walks us through the color changes used to create the colorful stripes and explains the process for creating the 2 extra pieces for the “thickness” of the pillow.
Brenda prepares all the pieces for seaming by placing stitch markers in specific locations to make assembly easier. In this lesson you will see how to match up all the pieces and seam them together. You will also learn how to stuff your pillow evenly and how to finish your project.

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.
