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 who 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 themselves will purchase (or otherwise provide) yarn, and possibly hooks, for their final projects. During the last two sessions, students will work on their final projects while learning and experimenting with combination stitches. Materials fee: $7 for initial supply of hooks and yarn.
