The day is here. Crochet Camp 2013 starts TODAY!! I can't tell you how excited I am to start this journey with you. I am passionate about crochet and creativity and how important simply making things can be. No matter how many courses I have run, I still get nerves on the first day and this is no exception!
This week's pattern, the Cherry Delicious Pot Holder, can be downloaded from here. There are both UK and US versions available. Don't worry if you are a complete beginner (or your kit hasn't arrived) and you can't get started right away. We have a couple of beginning lessons to get through first, and in some ways I think it is good to hold off until you can work on the first few skills all together.
I have also published the first lesson, Equipment. As posts go live, I will add them to the Table of Contents. If you fall behind, that is where to go to follow along. It is also where the Crochet Camp logo in the sidebar will take you.
Wondering about the differences between UK and US crochet terms, hook sizes or yarn weights? I have a really handy cheat sheet available for down load:

I will be publishing all of the patterns and instructions in both UK and US terms. Not sure which one you use? I love how Stacey from Fresh Stitches describes the difference - When you hear "cricket" and you think of an insect, you probably use US terms. If you think "sport", you probably use UK terms. (Also check out Stacey's adorable amigurimi (aka stuffed/toy animal) patterns)
