I am teaching a class at Cappy's Chowder House this coming Saturday, Jan. 27, and it still has five openings ..... in the off chance anyone wants to sign up because you're local or would like an excuse for a weekend trip to Camden, Maine.... here is the information:
Ever been frustrated by a wonderful pattern for a sweater or other project because it calls for a crochet trim, and you don't know how to crochet? Have you ever been prevented from completing something because of unexpected crochet finishing? Is there a project languishing in your closet, complete but for a crochet edging that blocked your progress??? Fear no longer! This class will give you the crochet knowledge you need to complete any knitting project you wish!
Who -- your instructor is Beth Collins
Where -- Cappy's Crow's Nest (right next door to Unique One!)
When -- Jan. 27, 10 am to 4 pm
How Much -- $36 plus materials
What You Need to Bring -- crochet hook, size F or G; sport or DK weight yarn to play with. Knitted swatches will be provided for you to crochet onto. Also, feel free to bring along any project you would like help on, if you have specific needs or questions about how to apply a crochet trim on a project of your own.
In this class you will learn:
1. the basic tools required for crochet
2. basic crochet stitches often used in edgings: chain, single crochet, double crochet, half-double crochet, picot. You will also learn to do crab stitch and shell stitches, other popular crochet trims used in knitting patterns.
The $36 fee for the class covers not only the instruction and entertainment by Beth Collins of Unique One, but it also includes an utterly fabulous luncheon iin Cappy's Crow's Nest! And Cappys is right next door to Unique One, so should you need anything before, during or after the class, it will be convenient to run over and get what you want!
This class is for knitters who have never crocheted before at all. If you already know how to crochet a little, you will find some of the class remedial, but you'll still get good information from it. If you can crochet as well as you can knit, or nearly as well, don't bother taking this class; you could probably teach it. :)
After taking this class, you will be able to :
1. Work basic crochet stitches
2. read and understand directions for trims and edgings that use basic crocheted stitches
3 face crochet directions in knitting patterns without fear, knowing that you can do this and knowing where to turn to if you need help.
Please Note: This in NOT a "learn to crochet" class. You will not learn to crochet any form of a garment; this is a class that will teach you how to apply crochet to knitted garments, and how to read the directions for this.
