Learn to crochet a bobble hat - two week course (Newquay)

This short course runs over 2 weeks - Wednesday 9th and Wednesday 16th October, from 7:30 - 9:30 pm.

At Sprout Health Foods, The Old Printhouse, Crescent Lane, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 1FZ

Learn how to crochet a warm woolly bobble hat, designed by the talented Claudine of Iron Lamb.  Once you've mastered the simple techniques to make these wonderfully warm hats, you'll have all your friends and family asking for one (Christmas presents sorted?..).

This course is suitable for absolute beginners, experienced beginners and confident crocheters.

£49 - includes all materials, tea/coffee and cake


In the first 2 hour session you'll learn the basic techniques and stitches to get started with the project, and will be guided step-by-step through the process of making your bobble hat. You'll learn how to hold the yarn, make chains, make half-treble stitches, and interpret a simple pattern. 

During the week between sessions you'll have the opportunity to carry on with your hat at home if you wish, and you'll be given access to some online video tutorials to help you along with the pattern.

In the second 2 hour session you'll continue the hat project with assistance, following the pattern, and will learn the techniques needed to finish the hat, including making and attaching your bobble.

Everyone learns at their own pace, and although it is perfectly feasible that you will complete the hat within 4 hours, you should not expect a complete project if you are still learning the basic skills. You can be assured that you will have time to make good progress with the project and will be fully equipped with all the skills and experience needed to finish it (with video tutorials and continued help and advice available to you if you get stuck).

The course will be delivered by me (Katie) and Claudine, and as we're working together we'll be teaching a larger group size of 12 (max).

The cost of the course includes all materials, tea/coffee and cake. At the end of the course, you’ll go away with your bobble hat, crochet hook, pattern, and your new skills that will carry you forward in your crochet adventures.

A maximum of 12 places are available, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
