By the end of this workshop, you are officially #MadeInBenchLab and will know: 1) the basic type of crochet pattern, 2) how to read a crochet pattern, 3) how to recognize the equipment and the materials used for crocheting, 4) how to crochet a square pattern coaster and 5) how to crochet round pattern coaster.

BenchLab Talented Instructor: Elly Wong. You’ll be learning from a woman with a heart for crocheting! Elly was first introduced to the world of crochet by her colleague. Since she was self-taught, it was initially difficult for her to understand the pattern but she eventually got the hang of it and learned the most effective way to teach other people to read them. Knowing that crocheting is no longer a popular hobby to most, Elly wishes to change that and enlighten others on the opportunities that they can get out of this skill, for example, starting a home decor or wearable business.
