This class is recommended for Beginners or those with some basic knowledge of crochet.

Today is the day you learn how to crochet and discover a relaxing hobby you’ll enjoy for life! You’ll love how portable crochet is — it’s perfect for always having a project with you on the go. And the best part, if you can hold a pencil, you can crochet.

You will learn how to comfortably hold a crochet hook and the yarn. You will learn the basic crochet stitches: chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, half double and double crochet. As you progress, we may get into the shell stitch as well as the treble crochet.

Lesson 1: CHAIN STITCH: Using the small hook (B or C) and cotton thread, you will learn the chain stitch, then you will string beads and create a necklace or bracelet.

  • Size B or C crochet hook (metal recommended),
  • 1 Ball of Aunt Lynda’s Classic Cotton Thread (lighter colors recommended – no black)
  • big eye needle
  • beads with a large hole

Lesson 2: SLIP STITCH: Using the cotton thread and a piece of fabric, we will make a coaster using the slip stitch and the chain stitch. We will also learn the picot stitch.

  • 1 Ball of Aunt Lynda’s Classic Cotton Thread (lighter colors recommended-no black),
