Crochet Lessons, all levels.


20 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Aug 03, 2015

I will teach you the basics of crochet and how to read a pattern. I will provide the yarn and the hooks (for in-person classes) to teach you all the basic stitches, the symbols and jargon of a pattern, and how to keep your tension. We will be practicing by creating swatches, which you can save to track your progress as you practice and improve your skills. If you have a hook already and would like to bring it, please let me know what size so I am sure to bring the appropriate yarn. If you are looking to purchase a hook, I recommend a size 5 to start.

For intermediate or advanced students, we'll go over some of what you're looking to learn and tailor the lesson to your level.

Each session is half an hour and you can schedule up to 2 at a time! (So an hour ;) )
For virtual meetings, we can use zoom, skype, Facebook messenger, or signal. Just let me know what works best for you!

Kyrstin is absolutely AMAZING at editing. She did way more than basic error. She provided me with her professional feedback on why she changed what sh...e change. For example, she change a paragraph so it sounds more confident or she will tell me how much she like a certain paragraph and why. These are valuable opinion that will also help me to become a better writer. And I didn't think I was that good at writing at all. I couldn't ask for a better editor. I'd say she transformed my ebook where the reader would enjoy reading it, understand it and appreciate the ease and flow of the ebook. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!show more

About Kyrstin Haines

My name is Kyrstin and I'm a 32-year-old woman originally from Spokane Washington. I moved to Portland for its sense of community and love of the locally made crafts! I spent a long time making jewelr...y on Simbi and offered those services in the past, but with grad school starting soon, I don't have the several hours a day it takes to make all those fine pieces. I'll be focusing mostly on crochet teaching and my skills with editing and language!show more
