Beginner Crochet Workshop: Not Your Grandma's Crochet!
Crochet is an addicting craft that kicks ass for several reasons: 1) A little more accessible than knitting, crochet allows you to improvise, build as you go and is much friendlier to beginners 2) You learn to make your own fashions and accessories. No longer will you be behold to the whims of Big Fashion-- if you can think it you can make it, and I will show you how! 3) Never buy a gift ever again! Crochet allows you to make all sorts of amazing crafts to give away each holiday season-- socks, scarves, ties, hats, tops, skirts, stuffed animals. You're only limited by your yarn and imagination! In this class, we will go over the basics. We will talk about the tools of the trade, materials and how to use them, and basic stitch techniques finally bringing it all together to create something FUN and EXCITING-- your very own chic crochet halter top tailored exactly to fit you. For this class we will be using worsted weight yarn, with a size 5.5 - 6 mm crochet hook. I will provide yarn and hooks during this class, but you are welcome to bring your own materials. Trust me, you will want to make sure you have some yarn and hooks on hand for after class-- this is an ADDICTING hobby! Class takes place in my apartment, which is extremely accessible by public transit. I keep a very clean home, but it should be noted I have two devon rex cats. One is very shy and the other very social, he will most likely check in on us crocheting.
