CROCHET 2 CLASS:
Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic crochet, and the stitches
chain, single crochet, half double crochet,
double crochet, treble crochet
I know that as soon as our weather warms up and dries out
you will want to be out in the gardens.
But, I can show you how to bring the garden to you with your
crochet. This is a Crochet 2 class. Itís more than our basic crochet class. If you have been to my crochet basics class,
we will go further into crochet, changing colors, and how to create different
textures to add to your projects. You
already know how to do those basic stitches but want more? I have some new stitches to show you. How about a new light weight summer scarf for
fun? Want a summer bag? I will make some swatches for you to
practice some new stitches and get you started on something summery to finish
in 3 weeks. Come check out some new fun
summery items to make and new yarns to try!! I have new handouts for you to
check out too! Have a pattern you need
help with bring it along.
Class 1 we will do a meet and greet, and check out the summer scarf
patterns to choose from. Get you started
on one of the new items. We will try
some new stitches on some swatches, I made for you to work on.
Class 2 we will
check out how everyone is progressing on their project! We
will go over how to change colors or yarn, magic knots and magic circles. Letís
look at how to weave in ends and how to do some more new stitches.
Class 3 we will
learn how to do edgings and put an edging as a finishing touch to your project.
Learn how to attach samples together.
Finish up our projects. And if
you want, we can even talk about what we are making for the upcoming winter
seasonÖ or maybe not!!
