Crochet for Beginners and More!

Description

In this class, we will learn the fundamentals of crochet and use these skills to work on making a rectangle. 


Once you know how to make a rectangle, you can make a LOT of things:
  • dishcloths 
  • coasters
  • scarves
You can even COMBINE rectangles to make
  • fingerless mittens (4 rectangles)
  • a toy cat (2 large rectangles)
  • even a sweater! (five REALLY big rectangles for a person!) 
Students will observe and practice:
  1. Making a slip knot
  2. Holding yarn for crocheting
  3. How to hold the hook
  4. How to make a chain stitch
  5. How to make a "single crochet" (type of stitch)
  6. How to "turn," which finishes one row and begins a new one
  7. How to "finish off."
Required materials include
  • a crochet hook (size H, I or J). This size should be imprinted on the hook.  
  • worsted weight yarn. This yarn most often has the weight of "4" 
  • access to a small set of scissors. (Safety scissors are fine. We probably won't need these, but it's good to have them available in case they are needed).
Please make sure your child has the correct size hook and correct weight of yarn. This can avoid a lot of frustration for the student.  

Students who decide to work on a larger project that requires multiple rectangles are welcome to attend subsequent sessions for support while working on their project.

Happy stitching!

Each student will need his or her own corchet hook (size H, I, or J), a skein of worsted weight yarn, and scissors.
