Beginner's Guide to Crocheting a Granny Square

Join us in-store to discover the joys of crochet with a classic granny square project, ideal for beginners.

1.5 hours Class size 1 to 5     label £22

Fall in love with crochet by creating a classic granny square! You’ll be able to combine beautiful colours to stitch this traditional crochet design, perfect for setting you up for so many other projects. Granny squares can be used to make blankets, garments and more – we’re here to help you get started with your first one.  

With the help of an Hobbycraft Artisan, you’ll learn how to crochet a granny square by using all the key techniques. You’ll use double and treble stitches, as well as learning how to decipher a granny square pattern and how to change yarn colours. 

There’s a kit included with the workshop to give you everything you need for the project. Within the 90-minute session, you’ll be able to create one granny square, though you can continue to practice making more once you’ve got to grips with all the skills. The kit even features a pattern for a granny square blanket to help you continue your adventure in crochet!  

This workshop is the perfect way to grow your crochet confidence, with tips and support from a pro! It’s ideal if you already have basic knowledge of the stitches but are looking to refresh yourself or develop further.

Katrina was very good and experienced. She was so patient with both of us. We were lucky that it was only two of us so we had the full attention. So happy with the outcome of the class

We did the learn to crochet a granny square workshop with Katrina in Tamworth. Katrina was absolutely brilliant, so kind and patient and made the entire experience very enjoyable. My daughter is Autistic and struggles with anxiety, but Katrina was calm and helped her hugely in achieving some lovely work. Highly recommended.

Teacher was very helpful and patient we should have book the beginners course first ( I did think this was it ) but she did her best to help us alone and catch up

Our teacher Katrina was brilliant - so patient and so skilled and into the bargain a thoroughly lovely person. The resources we were given made the session excellent VFM. Being new to crocheting I just loved being able to see my work grow into something so lovely. I couldn't wait to get home to make another square to ensure I could do it on my own. I have already enrolled on the online granny squares blanket course and am really looking forward to that and to using the skills learnt today to have a go at making an animal toy. Well done Hobbycraft - another hit with me

It was Katrinas first class and she was excellent!
I had wool and crochet hook provided for me to keep so this made the course good value for money.
I went home and have already started a granny square blanket
