You’ll learn how to make a chain, and the basic stitches of single, double, half double, and triple crochet. You will learn to crochet in rows and in the round. You’ll make a simple scarf or cowl, and learn how to crochet the granny square and other motifs.

Building Blocks: Develop your knitting skills as you knit a beautiful sampler blanket. Using Michelle Hunter’s Building Blocks booklet as our guide, we will work together on 12 different knitted blocks to put together to make a blanket.  With each block you will learn new skills including reading patterns, cables, increases and decreases, bobbles, and more. The instructions in the booklet are supplemented by free online videos for each technique. Class runs for 14 sessions to allow enough time to complete the blanket, even if you have to miss a class or two! 

Please try to visit the shop before the first class to choose and purchase your yarn. (10% off purchase of yarn for blanket).
