What could be more fun than talking to kids, talking about unicorns and crochet? On this week’s episode Heather and Sara check in and talk about all the different ways to engage your young person with crochet. Many people are having to stay at home with their children more than they had in the past so hopefully this discussion will help. Heather connects crocheting and doodling in a way that will help ease you into to joys of crocheting at home with others.
Since our team is working from home, we each interview a special guests to talk to us about crochet. First Heather talks to her 10 year old, Gideon, about her job and they brainstorm projects to do at home as a family. Next Producer Sarah chats to her 2 year old, Flower, about her job and crochet. Then Kerry talks to her 17 year old, Lauren, about how she first learned to crochet and what advice does she have for parents trying to teach their kids to craft at home.
Heather and Regan dive into the newly released softie patterns, or amigurumi projects, and even offer tips to how to improve upon what the patterns say. They also give a behind-the-scenes peak at the origins of this photo:
