Crochet for Knitters
An in-person class with Lisa Myers
Nov 11, 2:00-5:00pm PST
Every knitter should own a crochet hook — and know how to use it! From fixing dropped stitches to assembly, embellishment, and weaving in ends, there are so many ways that simple crochet techniques can improve your knitting.
A crochet hook can be as useful for your knitted projects as a darning needle is. Though nothing fancy, it’s invaluable. Lisa will share the many ways it can work. We’ll learn the basic skills and then brainstorm dozens of additional applications.
