Making circles and tubes is so easy in crochet! Everything from hats to bags to mitts and cowls can be worked in the round with no seams. Learn how to make a perfect circle in hdc and dc, how to work in a spiral, and several nifty ways to begin a circle. You’ll learn how to adapt stitch patterns in the round, how to place markers and work increases in marked stitches, when and how to turn your work, and how to close rounds neatly. Then we’ll move on to tubes that can grow into bags, cowls, and sweaters. You’ll leave class with several samples and pattern recipes that you can use to create your own circular designs. Circular crochet is really powerful, and this class will get your head all around it!
