Master Class in Crochet Fabric with Dora Ohrenstein
Learn how to see crochet in a new light by studying how the weight, fiber, and structure of the yarn affects its behavior. A variety of stitch patterns will be worked in class -- textured, lacy, angled -- using different weights and fiber contents and a range of hook sizes. You'll make fabrics that are structured for a bag, soft and pliable for a sweater, and feathery light for a shawl.
