January’s Close Knit

January’s Close Knit workshop was dedicated to the Manchester Satellite Reef Project which is currently on display, and in progress, at the Manchester Museum.
There certainly was a super turn out, and it looks like crochet is getting popular, as 20 or so eager crafters turned out to take part and contribute to the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project.

It was great to see the diversity of crochet pieces being made during the workshop, as well as watching those of you who turned up to learn and create your very own Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef. Learner crocheters  learned how to chain stitch, make double and treble stitches and then used these new skills to create a free formed piece of crochet. The pro-crocheters amongst the group went on to to create some fabulous crochet work from the project pattern sheet and from their own pattern sources. We’re now looking forward to adding them into the project at the museum and watching the project grow and change once again.

If you haven’t already seen the Coral exhibition and Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project, there is plenty of time to visit the Manchester Museum on Oxford Road. And you can contribute to the project until March 2014.
