About This Class

6ea4d149

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 even the most novice beginner through everything from how to hold your yarn, to how to weave in the tails of all three finished projects. When you're finished, you'll have mastered the basic stitches (Single Crochet, Half Double Crochet, Double Crochet), chaining, and tying slip knots— preparing you to continue the adventure with whatever project you choose next.

Course downloads include:

  • a supply list with links to everything you need
  • written and charted patterns for all three dishcloths
  • printable labels so you can gift/share your dishcloths in style!

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