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 is very intuitive. It is great for a beginner. I'm not a beginner, but wish I had this then. I love the way she shows you how and while you are learning, you are making something to be proud of at the end.

So far I have enjoyed all the DVDS and Classes that I have purchased from Annie's. I love the step-by-step to be able to completed a projects by used these videos or classes I would love to see more videos or classes in more of a variety such as young teenage tops or even women tops and a baby complete sets like with a jacket,mittens,booties and to complete the set with a baby blanket for a gift and even more variety of patterns would be great I would definitely purchase more of these type of videos or classes.

Super instructor - especially appreciate the way she shows joining new colours, and where to put the hook. I finally understand 'chain space' thanks to this class. I needed the 60 and 90 second repeat feature several times during my first viewing of this class so I know I will be watching the entire class a few more times to be sure I have a full understanding of the stitching and hook placements.

Even though I have been crocheting for many years, I enjoyed the class. I have always wanted to crochet doilies but did not feel very comfortable working with thread. The class was easy follow and made me feel more confident with thread, plus it provided tips on reading symbol crochet.
