Do you remember the beautiful doilies your grandmother or great-aunt used to make? Have you always wondered how they created such pretty pieces and wished you could crochet them too? Many thread crocheters started out as yarn crocheters until they realized the stitches are worked exactly the same in thread as they are in yarn! Now you, too, can learn how to crochet elegant doilies by taking this mini class. In this beginner-level crochet class, you'll:
  • Learn how to work and join rounds
  • Learn how to single crochet in a ring to form the first round
  • Watch Susan demonstrate basic crochet stitches in thread
  • Discover how to create a multicolored project
  • Work chain stitches, single crochet, double crochet and treble crochet
  • Learn to work a simple treble crochet shell
This class is one lesson from the 4-1/2-hour Crocheting With Thread class. Included in the Beginner's First Doily class is a $5 off coupon toward the Crocheting With Thread class.

Love the instructor. Very easy to listen to and she shows how to crochet really well. I have only completed a granny square before this and now I have completed my first doily. If they had her teaching how to do more advanced doilies or crochet I will certainly take her course. Very well money spent on a course.

I have not crocheted since I was about 10 years old. I am now 48 and it was amazing to me how I was able to follow along and create such a neat doily. I am really impressed.

I'm returning to crochet after putting my hook down many, many years ago.

I had some lessons off of my neighbor's friend a while back but I still wasn't confident to read charts and actually make things. I purchased this class in the recent Anne's sale; I've watched the video twice and bought the wool to start the project.

Why buy this class, I've been looking for a class for ages that would help me get the basics right and this fitted the bill. I like the fact that you can stop and replay as many times as you want until you get it, I really need this. Clear verbal and visuals which are important and they explain all the small steps involved in making the project. For the money it was an absolute bargain! I also purchased Lily Chin's other crochet classes so I have progression. Plus, I have access to these classes forever.

My goal is to make a crochet garment for myself I am on my way now to achieving this. As a person from Wales in the UK I have to remember some of the different stitch terminology for UK patterns and the different names for the wool but nothing wrong with bilingualism.

Thank you from a very happy customer.

Great class! The instructions were clear, and Susan took time to show everything she was talking about. Plus all of the 'extra' info, such as hook size with yarn size, and the blocking are included, which helps a lot. Thanks!
