Intro to Crochet

Demystifying Crochet Charts and Diagrams

Sunday, March 4, noon- 2.30pm, $35 (register online by February 26 for $28).
In the past few years crochet charts became very popular and for a good reason. It is a lot easier to read and follow crochet diagrams and charts then written crochet. Knowledge of symbols will allow you to make any crochet pattern , even in foreign language, like Japanese or Russian, because crochet symbols are the same (or very similar) in any language. You will practice your new skills by making a small project from a symbol crochet chart in the class.

Requirements: know how to make chain, single crochet, double crochet.
