I am pleased to offer both old fave and new rave crochet classes this spring at WEBs Yarn in Notrthampton, MA.
First Crochet I and Crochet II. These two series of classes provide students with core skills to start their crochet career off with a solid foundation. They are offered every semester at WEBs. We work through fun and functional projects designed to teach you the basic crochet stitches and other skills you need to tackle projects on your own and for future instruction. Wednesday’s 5:30-7:30 pm. Crochet I 1/27-3/2. Crochet II 3/16-4/20
Thrummed Baby Hat! I’ve been threatening a thrummed project for a while now and here it is. Thrumming is a technique of working unspun roving into knitting or crochet stitches while you work. This creates a cuddly, lined, and warm fabric as the roving felts over time. Making the thrums is a bit of effort on top of the stitches, so I introduce you to the technique with a small piece for a special little one. Saturday’s 1:30-3:30pm 2/27, 3/5, 3/12.
Tunisian Crochet Basics. This is basically “Come and swatch with me! “We’ll meet three times to cover the basic crochet stitches and various combinations and variations of those stitches. Tunisian crochet is a lot of fun and the stitches look enough like knitted stitches to fool seasoned knitters. They allow for patterns and color play you don’t quite get with traditional crochet or knitting. The pictures say it best! Saturday’s 1:30-3:30pm, 4/2, 4/9, 4/16.
Crochet a Bouquet. A natural offshoot of crocheted motifs, a world of crocheted flowers exists out there. They are great to embellish all sorts of garments, accessories and home goods. We’ll look at 3 different patterns, with charts. We’ll compare results with different fibers and hook sizes. I’ll provide the yarn! Saturday 4/30 1:30-4:30.
