Crochet 101 - A Virtual Workshop - October 11th and 18th
Crochet is truly a labor of love. Unlike knitting and weaving, crochet cannot be automated. With so many great designs available to make, it’s a perfect time to learn this fun and fulfilling fiber art. In this two – class series, I’ll teach you crochet basics; the slip knot, chaining, making a foundation chain, single crochet, half-double crochet and double crochet. I’ll talk about the importance of counting stitches, weaving in ends and seaming. This class is great for those just starting, or beginners who’d like a refresher course. With just a few simple skills, you’ll be ready to make gifts for yourself and your loved ones!
