This is a 2 session class which will teach you the basics of how to crochet, the terminology you need to be familiar with, the essential stitches you will need and how to pull back your work if you make a mistake.
Once you learn the basic skills required to crochet, you can make anything from a hat, scarf, cowl, socks, stuffed toys, and the list continues. It's a simple skill, and you can take anywhere from the couch to the baseball diamond, traveling in the plane, train or automobile.
In session one you will start a simple dishcloth in worsted weight crochet cotton and get a good handle on the basics, and then you'll pick your project that you'll be working on in the second session, and get the list of supplies that you'll need.
You'll take home your dishcloth and work on it until the next class and maybe even complete a second one if you get ambitious!
