This class will be a crochet 101 style class – very beginners can take this class, or those who know how to chain and want to know what to do, next! We will cover getting your yarn on the hook, foundation rows and basic stitches, and all of this in both flat and circular crochet. Each week of this 6-week class you’ll be able to complete a simple project using the skills you’ve learned in class. Once you start hooking, you won’t know how to stop!  All yarn included, hooks will need to be purchased.
