How would you like to crochet faster, more easily and more accurately? Knowing how to read crochet symbol diagrams can help you achieve all that -- and more. Symbol crochet diagrams are the universal language of crochet. This means you could literally read a pattern written by a designer from another country with ease!

Learning how to read crochet diagrams starts by learning the simple symbols for the basic stitches. Diagrams simply place these small symbols in the order in which you stitch them, creating a visual "picture" for you to follow instead of line-by-line written instructions. But don't worry -- this class also includes the patterns written out word-for-word so you can learn at your own pace.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Recognize all basic crochet stitch symbols including chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet.
  • Read crochet symbol diagrams for projects worked in the round.
  • Read crochet symbol diagrams for projects worked in rows.
  • Follow a crochet symbol diagram to make increases and decreases.
  • Make five exclusive crochet projects working from symbol diagrams.
Class includes complete instructions to make three exclusive projects plus two bonus exercise projects: Easy Octagon Motif Hot Pad, Cuddle Time Baby Blanket, Textured Stripes Reader's Wrap, Shades of Seaglass Dishcloth and Water Lily Shawl.

Enjoyed the class, and now feel less intimidated by charts/diagrams. Instructor is great, as she explains and shows what she is referring to and is very patient. My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was 8 years old but she never got the opportunity to teach me how to read charts/diagrams. I have always wanted to learn so am thankful for these videos. I followed along with Ellen and finished my first doily with reading the diagrams. I am so pleased. I can't wait to get started with her next project. She has opened up a whole new experience for me. As my sister would say: " You have created a monster." LOL
Thank you Ellen.

Wonderful class, like all I have of Ellen. He knows how to place himself in the student's place, I fully understand everything he explains. With this teacher I learned to crochet, a few months ago, and I am very happy with my achievements, which are Ellen's achievements. I am convinced that there are no bad or good students: there are bad or good teachers, and Ellen is excellent. Congratulations.
