Have you been wanting to try crochet plaid but it looks too intimiding? Or maybe you tried it but the increases and decreases were frustrating. I hear you. And it may have taken me two years (face palm) but I have created a course that will fix all your worries and frustrations. The Plaid Course will take your Holiday Gift list to the next level when you finally learn crochet plaid!
Two winters ago, I had a small idea. I had the idea to alternate colors to make a plaid-look hat. I realized that black + red makes a pretty burgundy color if you really squint your eyes a bit. Maybe this was a new cool way (and simple way) to do crochet hats!
Well, I’ll tell you, I was absolutely floored at the reaction my humble crochet plaid hat received. It gave me some ideas. Some really awesome ideas. Of course the world needs a crochet plaid scarf, some plaid decor, some plaid for baby and kids and plaid everything. This lead to my first Plaid Week, which was such a big hit that I did it again in 2017.
However, I chose to ignore the timid voices saying “That is way above my skill level” or “I wish I could do that, but it looks way to complicated”. Still others were scared off saying “That looks so cool, but way too many ends for me!” or “I am intimated to try working with more than one color”.
So I owe you an apology. A big one.
What kind of crochet designer and instructor am I if I don’t provide the instructions you need to feel comfortable making my plaid crochet patterns? Not a good one.
So I aim to change that.
This week I am launching the first course in the newly founded Whistle and Ivy Crochet School: Learn Crochet Plaid.
This course includes all you need to know to feel comfortable working all my past and future plaid patterns. The course includes basics for those who haven’t tried plaid yet, and other techniques like increases and decreases for those of you who are comfortable with making a plaid hat, but the tree skirt from last year gave you pause.
The course also includes 3 FULL crochet plaid project tutorials: Included are my Triangle Plaid Cowl, which I know was a struggle for many of you during Plaid Week 2016. I am also including one of the patterns that will be released during Plaid Week 2018, and I
know hope you are going to love it.

Hi Judy! I am so sorry! I recently moved the course to a new platform and neglected to update this link. My apologies! I have fixed it now, you can find the course here: https://whistleandivy.podia.com/learn-crochet-plaid
Thank you. I was very intimidated last year. Still feeling the same way this year but just might give it a try.
I hope you do!
PlaidTrSkr isn’t working and I am within the time frame specified in the email.
The code is PlaidTrSkrt :)
Well, yes, I did say that in my note. PlaidTrSkrt doesn’t work.
You said “PlaidTrSkr” which is short a T at the end. Did you use the whole code when you tried? What did ravelry say when you tried it?
I used copy and paste, directly from the email. I won’t be trying it again.
I’m sorry! I am trying to troubleshoot with you to see why the code wouldn’t have worked for you. Sorry for the frustration!
Thank you I want to learn this technique.
You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy the course!
Thank you so so much for all the patterns.im so exited to learn all these new patterns.blessings to you.xx
Thank you. So excited to try the tree skirt. I want to make 2 plaid afghans for Christmas.
