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.

Love Love Love This Class Whatever Jess Coppom teaches I will watch. I learned crochet as a child and wanted to get back to it. I embarked on taking online courses and discovered my stitch recall was faulty and had to relearn basic stitches. I understand getting practice with certain stitches is important but the assigned projects from these courses did not inspire me so I did not practice. Then I found this course! Not only did I get make something I would use but it was aesthetically beautiful AND modern. PLUS, I learned a stitch I had never heard of. If that was not enough to get my heart racing (and it was) this course project was perfect for some skeins I had laying around from my trip to Oslo, Norway. It was like the class was made for me. If you want modern take on a traditional craft take this class.
This course was really easy to follow and I actually finished my first pair of gloves.
