Learn to Crochet

with The Mercerie


I’ve designed this course for complete beginners.

If you’ve never held a crochet hook, if you have no clue how to work a stitch, if you look longingly at other people’s work and wish you knew how to do it too - this course is for you!

This FREE ‘Learn to Crochet’ course is a collection of lessons which will teach you how to get started - right from the beginning. We will cover holding the hook and yarn, working in rows and working in the round. By the end of this course you will know the basics and as with all my online courses - you can come back and revisit the content whenever you like - 24/7!

Here’s what people are saying about my online crochet courses

“The painstaking attention to detail Sue puts into her designs and the endless possibility of different colour combinations make all Sue's projects a delight and a fun challenge to make. Her videos, charts, graphs and written explanations are very clear and easy to follow, and she is always available and willing to help and go the extra mile to support you. Moreover, participating to making one of her projects, such as Gloria or Wallflowers, gives you the added bonus of feeling part of a large community of makers from all around the world, who share a sense of purpose and motivate each other in the process. Gloria, as well as Wallflowers, have been for me such great and inspirational experiences, and have helped me to refine my crochet, time management, and colour work skills, to mention just a few, and gave me the privilege to share with others like me.”


“For me Wallflowers started off as an interest in making a beautiful blanket I came across online with the hope I would also learn a few new skills along the way. I had no idea it would become this awesome journey of crochet, support, and inspiration.

Sue is an amazing teacher and creates a learning environment that is filled with joy and encouragement. Her well orchestrated videos and coordinating PDFs provide all the technical details necessary to complete each motif. Her choice of music combined with patient instructions enhances the experience.

This course has taken me on a journey that was nothing short of spectacular. I will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of a network of others that brought me so much enjoyment. Thank you so much Sue for creating this whole experience for us all. My completed blanket will be a constant reminder of this amazing course.”


“Sue's quality tutelage in videos, online, and zoom meetings that really gave me the courage and interest to join. Sue's personality and knowledge and her willingness to share her knowledge really make her courses extra special. I would recommend her courses to anyone interested in crochet - both beginner and experienced.”


“Thank you sooo much!!! I can’t begin to tell you how much I have thoroughly enjoyed your courses. You are such a wonderful teacher!! The videos are incredible and so well made!! I adore the music you use too!

You have a very special talent and I am so happy that I was able to finally be involved in your courses and the zoom meetings!! The pace for this course has been spot on for me too! I feel that you have balanced it out perfectly!!”


“ I would unconditionally recommend anyone to participate in HTTGS or Wallflowers. As a teacher of crochet Sue Maton is incredible. She offers an unparalleled opportunity to create heirloom pieces whatever your standard. There is something for every level.

Through HTTGS she is able to offer a learning experience whether you are a complete novice or an experienced hooker. Wallflowers takes this a step further with her unique design. As well as being a superb teacher of stitches and instructing in finishing techniques to make your work look beautifully professional, she offers her genius in colour combinations and blanket construction to all those who chose to learn with her. Her planning and attention to detail throughout her courses is phenomenal.

Each course has an extensive library of videos, paper based patterns, stitch diagrams and motivational audios. Providing perfect support materials to guide you through the work. Additionally learning with ‘The Mercerie’ is global. I have made lasting friendships and connections with like minded people all over the world.”
