Beyond Beginning Crochet: Not Your Granny's Squares
If you've been introduced to the basics of crochet (in my Crochet for Absolute Beginners class, for example) and are ready to learn some cool new skills, you're ready for this Beyond Beginning Crochet class! The granny square is a classic and versatile crochet craft. Granny squares are quick and fun to make, and they incorporate several important techniques that every crocheter should know. In this class, we’ll be using those techniques to make squares, circles, triangles, and more. You’ll learn to crochet in the round with both the traditional foundation chain method and the magic ring. This will also be a good opportunity to practice reading a pattern. This class is limited to five students to ensure that you'll get plenty of individual attention from your instructor. Price of class includes: Three-hour crochet class with individual instruction Patterns and tutorial handout packet Materials kit containing * Size H/8 (5.0 mm) crochet hook * Medium-weight acrylic yarn in multiple colors * Yarn needle * Pencil * Handmade work bag Complimentary wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided; students may also BYOB to share.
I created You're Crafty! Craft and DIY classes because I love making things and I want you to love making things, too. I'm a lifelong crafter. My areas of specialty include knitting, crochet, sewing, cross stitch, and making costumes. I offer a variety of small, intimate classes for all experience and skill levels. You'll have fun and meet new friends while challenging yourself to learn something new. When I'm not making stuff or teaching others how to make stuff, I'm walking/running in the Berkeley hills (walking up the hills, running down them), snuggling with my cats, and performing with Bay Area Flash Mob (often as a zombie). See you in class! Let's craft together!
