Crochet isn't just for winter
accessories!! Let me show you how to
crochet. Not only does it help with
relaxation techniques, it is for male and female, you can create beautiful
items all year long!
This class is for those for first time crochet, our first
class, we will learn crochet in rows and the basic stitches in crochet, by
creating a Stitch Sampler Dish or Wash Cloth.
In our second class, we will learn crochet in the round, to
create a Hat, a Basket or a Market Bag of your choice.
Our third class, we will continue by learning how to read
patterns, abbreviations, introduce you to different ways of crochet, crochet
lace and Tunisian crochet, and most important the yarns, the differences, the
options, and how to read the yarn labels and know what to choose, after you
choose a pattern. What's online,
tutorials, you tube and more.
I will give you plenty of handouts and step by steps, but
bring a notebook; you might want to jot down more information.
Please bring with you for your first class 2 skeins of
worsted weight cotton yarn. (Lily Sugar n Cream or Peaches n Cream or
Premier) these are the name brands. Any
color you choose.
will need a crochet hook size I/5.5, it can be aluminum, plastic, wood or
bamboo. The plastic or aluminum is usually the least expensive for starting
out. Many love the bamboo. It's a
personal choice. These items can be
found at Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn, AC Moore or your local yarn shop, or
online. We will discuss more about
online in class.
