videocamOnline

With DIY craft kit delivered to you

Join us online for our six-week course where you’ll learn how to craft a crochet blanket made up of colourful granny squares!



6 x 1.5 hours Class size 1 to 10 (public dates), 10 to 50 label £100

If you’re just getting started in the world of crochet and you’re looking to stitch your first project, our six-week course is the perfect opportunity! Master the granny square and hone your crochet techniques with weekly workshops that support your crafting journey.

This workshop series is ideal for a beginner with basic crochet knowledge. You’ll learn how to create five different granny square designs, as well as how to put them together to create a full blanket. Within these designs, you’ll be learning stitches such as the bobble stitch, spike stitch and more!

The Hobbycraft Artisan leading your workshops will be on hand to guide you through the steps of the crochet project, ensuring your confidence blossoms through the weeks. You’ll be able to create each design within the scheduled workshop time, but you’ll need to create the remaining squares between workshops using the skills you’ve learned. This is a great way to get your practice in!

Workshop Overview

Week 1: The Artisan will teach you to master the classic granny square technique.

Week 2: This tutorial will focus on creating the perfect solid granny square.

Week 3: Learn how to spike stitch a square.

Week 4: Try your hand at a textured square.

Week 5: The Artisan will show you how to make a bobble stitch.

Week 6: Build your blanket using all the squares you’ve previously made during the course, joining each one together to complete your colourful granny square blanket.

At the end of the course, you’ll have crafted a beautiful crochet blanket that you can continue to add more squares to, if you wish. You’ll also have gained confidence when it comes to those all-important crochet stitches, ready to take on your next big project.

What a wonderful course! Thank you so much to Kathryn (and Louise in the last session) for such patience and support throughout the course. As I suffer from many issues following an ABI it was so uplifting to have Kathryn to explain, and many times to re-explain, what I had to do both in the class time and beyond. After week one I had convinced myself that I would not be able to complete the crochet blanket, however, this support has allowed me to feel successful ( despite my many errors!) at crocheting and I have almost completed the blanket.
I am now a crochet addict and have already ordered items for Hobbycraft for my next project! Thank you so much Kathryn for your help and understanding!

Granny Square Blanket Crochet 6 Week Course review by Fiona Todd Sydney

Kelly Scott May 2022


Absolutely loved these classes with Kathryn. Very approachable and friendly as well as knowledgeable. Learned a lot and have a new blanket - my first crochet project is complete and ready to learn (and create) more.

Vanessa Cumper May 2022


Brilliant class, the tutor was amazing, had loads of tips which made life easier. She was so welcoming, patient, informative and encouraging. The kit was a good kit, although the needles were plastic and broke very easily, the hook I would have preferred an ergonomic version and the pattern could have done with clear pictures for each square.

Catherine Taylor May 2022


Excellent course Kathryn was lovely patient and very knowledgeable gave us all confidence and valuable tips

Sandra Lock Apr 2022


An excellent course from week one through to week six. Our tutor, Kathryn, was warm friendly and encouraging throughout the course. She taught us how to create the different granny squares and showed us the required techniques to complete the blanket. Kathryn also pointed out possible problems along the way and how to deal with them. She inspired confidence you cannot get by simply following videos and was happy to answer any question no matter how basic. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning crochet. You will not finish your blanket in six weeks but you will be capable and confident to continue yourself and then move on to other projects.

Laura Danese Apr 2022

Really enjoyed this course! Learnt new stitches and how to follow a pattern. Plenty of yarn and a excellent tutor.

Angela Robinson Feb 2022


Kathryn was excellent. She started with a group of some that had crochet experience and some (me) that had never picked up a hook before. Whilst I’ve still got to continue (probably over then next few weeks) to complete my blanket, I’ve now the understanding to do this. Which is incredible to be taken from zero knowledge, when I was very worried I’d bitten off more than I could chew, to learn this over zoom. Thank you so much.
I would definitely recommend.
