About This Class


Crochet isn’t just for grannies anymore! Nope, crocheting is a portable, meditative skill that can add a little zen to your life and some hip accessories to your closet. In this class, you’ll create a pair of fingerless mitts for your own two hands with your own two hands.

In the process, you’ll learn how to start any crochet project with a chain, how to do a single crochet stitch, how to customize the size of your crochet project and how to sew finished crochet edges together. We’ll also discuss different yarns, how to read a yarn label and how to choose the correct hook for a project. Even if you don’t consider yourself crafty or you’ve never picked up a crochet hook, this class will guide you through the basics to have you creating your own modern accessories in no time.

This course was really easy to follow and I actually finished my first pair of gloves.
Love this option!
