Beginning Crochet (2 days)
Tuesday, July 24, and Thursday, July 26, 5:30-7:30pm
Teacher: Brandon Rumsey
Conquer your fear of the hook, and join the many crafters who have discovered the ease and speed of crochet! Join Brandon to learn the basics in two relaxing sessions. Working from a pattern provided by Spun, you’ll learn how to make a foundation chain, as well as how to single crochet, double crochet, half-double crochet, triple crochet, work simple increases and decreases, slip stitch, and work in the round. Day 1 will set you on track, while day 2 will get your started on granny squares and give you time for questions and further practice. You’ll finish the course with the skills and confidence you need to make quick, basic scarves and blankets!
