I can't tell you how excited I am to teach this gorgeous little lesson! Sunburst grannies are just my favourite granny square - interesting without being stressful, absolutely variable, they can be old fashioned and floral or flip out the colours and they are minimalist and modern - you can make them whatever you want to be. I've added the join-as-you-go method because it's also my favourite joining method so I'm really just making the lesson that I wish I could be on. It's a tricksy little stitch, requiring some maneuvering but we'll tackle it in a relaxed way so you can find the fun in it even if it's twisting your melon.

This lesson is for beginner to intermediate crocheters and those who are coming back to the craft. You'll need to be pretty confident with chains, double crochets and treble crochets - not an expert! We'll cover the actual stitch patterns, how to read written and charter patterns, how to read your stitches and put right mistakes and then of course the join-as-you-go method too. Jam packed but relaxed!

You'll need to bring a crochet hook - 4mm, 4.5mm or 5mm would each be fine - we'll provide the yarn and the pattern. The lesson runs from 11am to 1.30pm on the 25th of June. Tea, coffee, herbal teas and snacks are available on the day - very important to keep your strength up for some serious crocheting!

Lessons are downstairs in the basement of the shop of Trinity Walk. There are 12 steps down and then 12 steps up again. There's a sturdy handrail and you can take your time but it isn't going to be accessible to some people - if this is you then please reach out because we can teach lessons on the shop floor which is accessible but we need to arrange a date and time when the shop isn't open which we'll do to work around you.

Eleanor teaches this lesson, there may be swearing... Lessons are non-refundable, they are transferable so if you can't make it you can sell it on or give it away. You can also speak to us and if we can sell it we will refund you or swap you to a different date.
