Today’s crochet is not just about Kleenex box covers and granny squares. With all the wonderful and exciting new yarns and the fabulous new books and patterns, crochet has something to offer to everyone...even you knitters, spinners, and weavers out there! Not only is crochet fun to learn and faster than knitting, it is very hot in the fashion industry right now. With four basic stitches you can make an infinite variety of projects in a short period of time. In this class you will learn not only the basic crochet stitches and edgings, but you will also learn about gauge, yarn weights and correlating hooks, crochet tools, and reading basic crochet directions. Crochet is invaluable as an embellishment for knitted or woven projects, so come and join us to see what crochet can do for you!
Skill Level: Beginner Materials Required:
A hook in size G, and a small ball of yarn to get you started, will be provided at the first class.
Prior to the second class meeting, please purchase: 5 skeins Tahki Yarns Cotton Classic in 4 colors - please choose colors that coordinate with your kitchen since most of our projects are kitchen friendly. Do not choose, black, navy blue, or white, please, as you will be unable to see the stitches in these colors.
Your crochet tool kit (scissors, tape measure, Susan Bates Knit Check, locking ring markers or safety pins without coils, tapestry needle, pencil or pen)
You may need crochet hooks in sizes F, G, H and I (you may not use them all, but if you are a tight or loose crocheter, you may need to go up or down a size) Consult your instructor for guidance.
