How to talk and eat and drink tea at the same time as you crochet. (This is perhaps the most important crocheting skill of them all). We also learned that it took Brown Owl Angie the equivalent of 4.2 days to crochet this colourful warm…

I thought we might offer a couple of options for you – because some have never crocheted before, and some have crocheted a little but want to learn how to read a pattern. So for beginners we will start you out by doing a granny square like this…
