FAQ

  • Are the classes live? What happens if I can't make the time?

    No, the classes are video on demand and so can be watched at anytime.

  • I'm a knitter, will I be able to learn from the course?

    Yes! No crochet knowledge is assumed in the course.

  • Is this a crochet-a-long?

    Yes, it can be. We use the cowl pattern to take you through the basic stitches and beyond. If you don't want to make the cowl you can still learn all the stitches covered in the class by making a scarf, sample squares or wash cloths.

  • What happens after I buy the class?

    If you aren't already signed up to the Thinkific platform, after purchasing the class you will receive an email from the address noreply@notify.thinkific entitled "Welcome to learning with The Crochet Project" with the login information you need. You can access the class from your dashboard at http://learn.thecrochetproject.com
