Crochet for Knitters
A virtual class with Rosann Fleischauer
Mar 31, 2:00-4:00pm CDT
Crochet is something knitters know about — even those who have never done it before — or just know the basics. As a knitter, you already understand yarn, stitch counts, how to read patterns and work from charts; so let’s apply that existing knowledge to a new medium — crochet.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks following the event.
Come explore the fundamentals of crochet as we work together on a simple project to foster the learning process. We will start by exploring the following: pairing of yarn and hook, gauge, and making the chain stitch, single-, double-, and treble-crochet.
Once you get the basics and create your first crochet swatch, we’ll review how to read stitches, charts, and patterns. We will then begin our first project together: working a decorative crochet edge onto your knitted swatch.
• 2 Locking stitch markers
• Crochet hook in US size H
• About 100 yards of worsted-weight yarn, preferably wool or acrylic in a contrasting color to the swatch (avoid rayon or bamboo which are more difficult to work)
• Crochet Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator, Crochet hooks of various sizes
Limited pre-class work required.
