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. (Once you’ve learned to crochet, join us on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. or Fridays at 1:00 p.m. for Hooked on Crochet.) The Advanced Class is for those who know the basic stitches and can read a basic pattern.  You will learn advanced stitches to crochet stand-up flowers and make advanced stitches for afghan and pillows. Bring your “yarn stash” (especially green for the leaves) and hooks. Ages 50+.  Instructor: Berniece Wilkins. Registration deadlines: September 5 and September 7. Min. 4. Max. 5.
