There are a few spaces left! If you’re interested please check in with the Naked Sheep Knit Shop via the link posted here. I’m excited to teach Learn to Crochet in a few weeks at the Naked Sheep. I’ve posted details and a link to the Naked Sheep site in an earlier post. Actually, teaching crochet to beginners is one of the classes I enjoy the most. In my experience, many people take to crochet like a duck takes to water.
During the class we go over the basic crochet stitches in the first day (single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet, treble crochet). Then we learn how to crochet in the round and learn how to shape both flat and round pieces with increases and decreases. I also go over how to read symbols on crochet charts and hopefully get students on their way to learning how to make their own beautiful crochet objects with an unlimited variety of stitch patterns. If we have time I teach the basic shell stitch pattern from a simple chart.
I’m also at the Thursday “Knit Night” at the Naked Sheep (unless I have a family gathering or cannot make it on that night) so I can help students who have questions or difficulties with their work.
I love, no adore, the fact that most crochet symbols and charts are universal so there is very little guessing and translating when it comes to using the charts. As you may have noticed from my earlier posts, I’m a big fan of Japanese crochet books as all the instructions are charted and visual. I DON’T need to know how to read Japanese to finish these projects 🙂
By the time the students finish the course their well on their way to crocheting stitch patterns and objects like these:
