Learn How to Crochet Solomon's Knots
Taking a crochet class from Robyn Chachula is quite the experience. I love her as a teacher. Robyn is fun and bubbly; her classes are full of laughter, and she is a fabulous instructor. Not only does she walk you through the stitch step-by-step, she talks slowly and repeats the instructions, explaining each step. She’s so easy to follow.
As an engineer, she is a little bit obsessed with stitch diagrams, but she has a great argument when she points out that understanding stitch diagrams will allow you to work patterns even if the written instructions are in a foreign language. Stitch diagrams are universal. Plus being able to visually see how the stitches work together is incredibly helpful for me.
In her new workshop, Solomon’s Knot Lace, Robyn will teach you how to work the Solomon’s knot, or lover's knot. This crochet lace stitch creates an openwork fabric that highlights the yarn. You can use any yarn, from a smooth cotton or acrylic, to a lace-weight thread, to a textured ribbon yarn.
Once you have the basics of Solomon’s knot down, Robyn will show you how to introduce other crochet stitches into the lace pattern. You can replace the single crochet in your Solomon’s knot with a cluster or adding tiny picots. Robyn named her picot stitch pattern Effie. So cute!
You can even add beads to your Solomon’s knots. I would never have thought of that, but I love the sparkle and color they add.
Whether you are whipping up quick cowls, scarves, or shawls, or want to incorporate Solomon’s knots into your garment fabric, you really need to watch Robyn’s workshop. Order or download your copy of Solomon’s Knot Lace with Robyn Chachula today. And check out this great preview.
