Crochet Skill Building
Learn how to crochet more, better, faster, & with less mistakes!
"I finished the course and even though I knew how to crochet before the course I learned technical things I did not know. I was a self learner. Loved the course!"
What is your crochet skill level?
We'll give you a hint - it's not based on the number of projects you've completed or how long you've been crocheting!
How many crochet levels are there?
There are only 4 universal levels in the crochet world - that's it. Each level is categorized by specific crochet actions and application.
What's the difference between my skill level, and a pattern level?
Crochet patterns are assigned a skill (difficulty) level based on the crochet actions and applications you'll be asked to execute.
Understanding how to read these within a crochet pattern, and assessing your own skill, will help you to accomplish many more crochet designs than you might think you're capable of...
"Finished this week and printed today! It was a great Course overall."
