Event Description

This four week course is designed for those who wish to learn to crochet, or who need a refresher. Women and men of all ages are welcome! During this course, you will be introduced to basic crochet tools, stitches, and techniques, and you will have the opportunity to work on a couple of projects based on your comfort level. You will be shown a variety of pattern resources, and will be shown how to read patterns (written patterns, and if time allows, graph patterns too!).

The course will be taught using Right-handed instruction and UK terminology. 

Materials for the first session:

  • Crochet Hook:  5.0 mm (H/8)
  • Yarn - DK weight in color of your choice. Please select a solid color in a light shade. Avoid dark blue, black, burgundy; avoid variegated or multi-colored yarn.

Note: Please get in touch if there is interest from left-handed individuals, Marlys can arrange a class if/as needed.

  • Duration: 4 x 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (a recording will be available)
