This intensive two-part workshop explores the basics of crochet (e.g., singles, half-doubles, doubles, trebles, etc.) in the first session.  We’ll also learn the magic circle and foundation rows.  Then, in a second session, we’ll add a wide range of additional stitches to your repertoire and talk in-depth about technical problems that often plague beginning crocheters, such as reading patterns, keeping edges straight, adding new yarns, and regulating tension.  You will emerge an advanced beginner (or perhaps intermediate) crocheter, ready to go on to a range of crocheted accessories, apparel, and home goods.  As a graduation gift, we’ll show you how to crochet in the round, give you a hat pattern, and start the hat. At your leisure, you can return and we will help you finish it!   Note:  Toy making is taught in another workshop.   

Materials:   Size G or H crochet hook (Boye or Clover) and 100 grams worsted weight smooth, light-colored yarn (e.g., Encore, Vintage, Galway).  We hope that you will buy supplies at Artisan Knitworks.

Homework:  None.  

For most classes, we hope you’ll use our beautiful yarns! We offer a 10% discount on full-priced materials to be used in the class.

All classes include detailed handouts or (as relevant) printed patterns.
