Crochet for beginner

Page history last edited by Susan Eiseman Levitin 10 years, 1 month ago

Full Description:

This will be a hands-on teaching session to give the basics of crochet.  We will cover making a beginning chain, single crochet, double crochet, and half-double crochet.  If we have time, we may look at fan stitches and other fancy stitches.  There will be a limit of 10 people unless someone else wants to help run the session with me, then we could accomodate more people.

 

Skills Needed:

No previous knowledge of crochet is expected.

 

Materials Needed:

Bring a crochet hook (size F or G would be good) and some yarn to play with.  I will bring as many hooks as I can find.  As with knitting, smaller hooks go with lighter yarn and larger with heavier.  If you have an F or G hook, a DK weight yarn or a light worsted would work.

I'm interested, I've tried before, but haven't gotten further than a lumpy chain.

I have been wanting to learn some basic crochet--mostly to do market bags! I will be there with a crochet hook that I currently use for picking up stitches.

I'm not an absolute beginner but I could use a refresher course, I do a lot of faking it when I try to crochet. The Granny Squares a caaaallllling.

I've tried to crochet before, but always get stuck--count me in.

Can't crochet worth a crap. Hoping this session will help me remedy that.
