Curious About Crochet

One of the greatest things about crochet is that you don’t have to invest in fancy, new materials or find room in your house to store a bunch of equipment. With just a simple hook, a skein of yarn, and a comfy place to sit, you can begin enjoying all the benefits this craft provides. In the Beginner Class, we’ll get you started with a few basic stitches and show you how to read a pattern. Please bring to class a size K crochet hook and one skein of 4-ply yarn in a light color.  The Beginner 2 class is for those who know the basic stitches and can read a basic pattern.  You will learn stitches to crochet stand-up flowers and make different stitches for afghans and pillows. Bring your “yarn stash” (especially green for the leaves) and hooks.  Instructor: Berniece Wilkins. Ages 50+.  Registration deadline: September 4.  Min. 4. Max. 5.
