About This Class

Through this class, participants will learn the basic crochet skills necessary to complete a scarf in only about 2 hours! The scarf you'll be creating was designed to resemble the Awareness Ribbons we've all become so familiar with. Everyone has been touched by Cancer - Diabetes - AIDS - Autism - MS - the list is endless! This project will teach you the skills you need to complete a scarf to show your support for a cause that's meaningful to you. 

The look of this Scarf can be personalized in a number of ways, by combining different weights and types of yarn as well as the color or colors of yarn you want to work with. Lesson One will cover some suggestions for materials as well as some Awareness Ribbon colors to get you started on the first portion of creating your class project.

Lesson Two will teach you the stitches you will need to know in order to complete the project.  There are only two: the Chain Stitch and Half-Double Crochet.  If you haven't crocheted previously, you'll be surprised at how easily you'll be able to master those stitches and be on your way to creating some beautiful and useful items.

Lessons 3 and 4 will demonstrate the process of making and finishing your scarf.

Once you've mastered the basic stitches, the scarf can be completed in about  2 hours or less. The pattern is simple enough for a beginner to follow easily and finish fast, but the look can be altered in so many ways that even more experienced stitchers will enjoy making it. These scarves are kind of like fingerprints - no two are alike! My favorite combination is brown worsted weight yarn, coupled with bright multicolor eyelash yarn - a combo I call "Chocolate and Pop Rocks"!

Included in the class materials are the scarf pattern and a chart of awareness ribbon colors so students can create a scarf for their class project that's tailored to a cause that's near and dear to their hearts! I'll be looking forward to helping you learn this new skill. Hit the "Enroll" button now and let's get started!

I've had a fascination with needlework as far back as I can remember. Both of my grandmothers were talented with a crochet hook. One grandmother had a set of Wedding Party dolls, in her glass curio cabinet, wearing beautiful crocheted gowns and tuxedos that she made - I just couldn't take my eyes off them every time I'd visit. Eventually she gave most of them to me, but being so young at the time, I didn't really appreciate the time and effort - and talent - that went into those dolls. I just knew I was crazy about them! My other grandmother crocheted beautiful doilies and taught me the basics when I was old enough to want to learn. Someone gave me a kit with everything you needed to make a crocheted hat with colored spangles on it for Christmas, and I was off and running. I haven't stopped crocheting yet!

Through the years I've added a lot of skills to my craft arsenal - knitting, painting, beading and sewing. One summer I even did airbrush tattoos at fairs and street festivals! I love creativity in all forms and love to share that interest with others. A highlight of my "crafty career" was being asked to create the knitting pattern for an Amigurumi cat that appears in the new book, "Knit Your Own Murder" by Monica Ferris (Berkley Prime Crime), the 19th novel in the Needlecraft Mystery Series, which was released in August 2016.. 

In the "real" world, I've written and/or produced over 200 commercials for radio and television, and provided voiceovers for many of them, as well as character voices for other entertainment projects in the US and Europe. 

If you have any questions about my classes, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks for taking the time to check out my bio! I'll be looking forward to seeing your name on one of my student lists.
