What you'll need

To practice the stitches you'll need a 10mm crochet hook (USA - size D) and one ball of category 6 weight yarn. For the main projects your will need a 5mm hook (USA - H) and category 4 weight yarn. Full instructions on where and how much to buy for each size are included in the course. If you are a beginner we suggest making the baby size first as this is more manageable and requires only two balls of yarn.
