About This Class

69f07c01

Get ready to crochet your first hat—you've got this! From sweaters, to blankets, to toys—even the fanciest crochet is made just by making loops with a hook. If you can make a loop, you can crochet!

This course will walk beginners through everything from choosing yarn, to how to hold it, and from the beginning stitches, through to weaving in the ends and attaching (optional) pompoms.

When you're finished, you'll have a beautiful, cozy hat that you can be proud of! Along the way you'll learn how to work in joined rounds, how to Double Crochet (DC), Single Crochet (SC), Slip Stitch (SL) and Chain (Ch), and if you opt for it, how to add classic ribbing with Front and Back Post Half Double Crochet (FPHDC/BPHDC).

Course downloads include:

  • a supply list with links to everything you need
  • written pattern in range of sizes from newborn/premie to adult large
  • printable labels so you can gift/share your hats in style!

Give the gift of handmade this year (or just treat yourself to some much deserved yarn-therapy)!
