In this basic "Learn to Crochet" class, you will learn about materials, pattern abbreviations and reading, how to chain, slip stitch, single, half double and double crochet and turning. This class will enable you to create a scarf or afghan. Crochet is often used to trim knitted garments, and is the basis for Tunisian Crochet as well.

As many of you know, I've been looking for and wanting to teach a "progressive learn" crochet program, much like KnitPurlHunter's "Building Blocks" for Knitters. Well, I recently found this, and rather than "reinvent the wheel" this is where we will start. If you know how to chain, do single, double and triple crochet stitches, this will be your next step! There are so many beautiful crochet patterns being designed now -- not just "granny squares" (even tho' we love them and they have their place!), and we want you to be able to do them!
The class will run approximately 12 weeks, and the cost will be $120. It will be comparable to BB -- you will learn many stitches, techniques, how to read patterns and charts and produce a lovely sampler afghan!

This is an excellent way to build your knitting skills! Knowledge of the knit and purl stitches required, but this class will help you become a good intermediate knitter! You will learn varying stitches like cables, bobbles and lace, plus many techniques in each class. Twelve beautiful 12" x 12" blocks of different stitches yield an elegant afghan at the end of our class! Also, learn "Long-tail" cast on , pattern reading and how to "read" your knitting, which will improve your technique, and help you tackle any project!
12-week commitment, $120 (plus book and yarn). Simplicity by HiKoo is the yarn used and you may select one, two or three colors to complete your afghan! You will also need two sets of US#6 (4mm) 24" needles.
