Modern Irish Crochet 1: Making Motifs with Myra Wood
The popularity of Irish Crochet has exploded around the globe in recent years! Magazines like Duplet from Russia feature the long-treasured technique with a modern twist; multi-color versions that rival any paintbox.
Rather than use tiny hooks and cobweb threads to create these motifs, we will use size 10 thread and a B or C crochet hook. We will learn how to interpret Russian charts and symbols, as we try out select motifs (to join later*). Tons of motifs will be shown on their own and combined into finished projects.
*Note: We are focusing on the motifs in this class; to connect them, Modern Irish Crochet II: Putting it all Together will teach you what you need to know.
Note: Must be comfortable reading crochet charts.
_100 yards each of 2-3 colors of size 10 cotton crochet thread
_Size 1.5mm and 1mm steel hooks or set of steel hooks.
