For this course, participants will learn basic crochet stitches and terminology needed to follow a pattern. We will make a simple hat or scarf, and members will be able to take home the pattern for both.  Instructions for fingerless mitts or a shawl or afghan will be given using the same pattern.  Participants will need to bring two skeins of worsted-weight yarn of their choice, and a size I or J crochet hook to the first class.

Jean Castle ( learned to crochet at age six and has been teaching crochet for at least twenty-five years.  For many years, she raised fiber animals and had their fleeces made into yarn for her projects.
