We’ve assembled a series of 3 introductory crochet classes that will make you comfortable with a crochet hook. We begin with practicing the stitches, then move on to various projects with different stitches and techniques. By the end of the classes, you’ll be ready to chain for your next project.
The game here is a bit of slip stitchery, where you never knit with more than one color of yarn per round, yet you end up with a cacophony of color. Learn how easy slipped stitch patterns can be! With a pattern written in six sizes, this is a hat for all generations, from grandbaby to grandmama.
