Tunisian Crochet (2 weeks)
Sundays, October 14 and 21, 5-7pm • $63
Teacher: Brandon Rumsey
Tunisian crochet! A further crafting frontier! Tunisian crochet, popularly known as Afghan crochet, expands the boundaries of what you expect from crochet by combining knitting with crochet, yielding a textured, durable fabric with depth and character that’s perfect for blankets and wearable accessories. In the first class, Brandon will teach you several fun Tunisian crochet stitches, and in the second you’ll get started on a cute cloth to gift or keep, in the process learning new techniques that will stretch your crafting repertoire considerably. You might leave class hooked! (Who could resist?)
