We are now into the 3rd week of our latest project – the Amigurumi Owl Door Stop.
This is a project I have specially designed for my students to build on the skills they acquired in their first 10 week course. From being complete beginners they are now able to tackle a relatively complex project such as this! I am really proud of them!
Do you have basic crochet skills? Would you like to join the Riverhouse Hookers and take part in guided courses and projects such as this? Get in touch! [email protected]
Alternatively, for complete beginners we’re hoping to run a second crochet class on a weekday evening at the Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre in Walton, Surrey, United Kingdom starting in September. Please contact me as above.
Don’t live nearby and would like to make this owl? This pattern is now available for purchase, in both British & US crochet terminology. I will be donating a portion of the sales to the Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre.
The majority of patterns you will find in books, on-line and even some British magazines use US or International crochet terminology. It’s for this reason that despite being a British crochet teacher, I teach my classes using American crochet terms.
Here is a handy chart showing the different terminology used for British and American crochet stitches, as well as the symbols.
