Join Danica for an introductory class in crochet (that’s the one with the hook, not the two needles). Crochet is a really quick and fun way to make some unique and trendy items. Learn about the different types of yarn, hooks, stitches, sources, and how to read a pattern. Once you get started, choose a beginner or intermediate pattern to crochet a hat, scarf, or cowl of your very own! The first class includes starter materials; students will then choose their own project and materials with instructor guidance. This is a course for beginners or those that would like a refresher or a prod.
