We will concentrate on the three basic crocheting skills of chain stitch, single crochet and double (and half-double) crochet. So that all participants are learning with the same materials, the instructor will initially supply hooks and practice yarn to each participant. Participants will learn to follow basic pattern instructions and learn about different types of yarn and appropriate hooks. After that instruction and a few sessions of practice, participants will purchase (or otherwise provide) yarn and possibly hooks, for their final project and begin to work on it during the last two class sessions. Materials fee: $5 for the initial supply of hooks and yarn provided by the instructor.
