Edie Eckman – Workshop 1

Wednesday, July 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Essential Techniques for Crochet Confidence

You’ve got the basic crochet stitches down pat, but you still have questions. How do I tell the right side from the wrong side? Why are my edges crooked? How do I decrease without making a hole? How do I weave in ends invisibly and securely? How do I read a pattern?If these and similar questions plague your crochet, now’s the time to clear up the confusion. No matter your level of crochet experience, if you have questions, this is the class for you. You may even find answers to questions you didn’t know you had. Crocheters of all experience levels are welcome. Leave class ready to tackle your next project with confidence!

Meeting Format: Lecture and hands-on learning

Level of Experience:  Should be able to ch, sc, hdc, dc. (This is not a learn-to-crochet class, so remind yourself of what those various stitches are.)

Materials and Supplies Needed for Class:
• Smooth, light-colored worsted weight or dk-weight yarn
• Hooks in various sizes appropriate for the yarn

Homework: You should be able to ch, sc, hdc, dc. (This is not a learn-to-crochet class, so remind yourself of what those various stitches are.) Play with the yarn and hook you plan to bring to class and make sure that they work well together – that the yarn doesn’t split and that the hook doesn’t hang up going through the stitches. Come to class with questions.
