Bath Knitting & Crochet Guild – knit/crochet-a-long

Mary Henderson and Janet Friel have created a special knit/crochet-a-long for the Bath Knitting & Crochet Guild this year.

The project is a cowl designed to use up yarn from your stash/leftover from projects while creating a lightweight garment. The stitches are a progression from simple to slightly complex, and Mary and Janet will be on hand at regular intervals to provide assistance and share the next stage of the project.

If you’d like to join in you’ll need:

  • Yarn: 4ply merino or Bluefaced Leicester or sock yarn. 100g/425m. To make a longer version in any size 2 skeins will be required.
  • Needles: 3.5mm circular (60cm cable to accommodate stitches) and 4mm needle for casting off.
  • Download: 2019 knit and crochet-a-long pattern

In an homage to the Fashion Museum Bath, who kindly host our group each month, the inspiration for the cowl comes from the current exhibitions A History of Fashion in 100 Objects and Royal Women

Regular tutors and local supporters of the group, Mary Henderson and Janet Friel have created a very special knit-a-long/crochet-a-long for our members. The project is a cowl designed to use up yarn from your stash/leftover from projects while working towards a lightweight garment for spring.

Bath Knitting & Crochet Guild – Tapestry Crochet

For our November session regular member and crocheter Anna led us through a workshop on tapestry crochet.

This is a technique that is achievable for most if you’re familiar with chains and doubles and everyone at the session managed to learn the tapestry crochet technique, with some even starting the snowflake motif. There was an industrious atmosphere and lots of counting!

If you’d like to have a go there are instructions below from the Knitting & Crochet Guild about learning to crochet (or to use as a refresher) and Anna’s notes from the session.
