Intro to Crochet Basics
Our Intro to Crochet Basics class is for anyone who wants to learn to crochet and/or for knitters who want some to add crochet (such as edgings) to their knitting skills. Learn slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet.
We usually try to have a monthly morning class (usually a Thursday) and an evening class (usually a Monday). An intro session is usually 2 hours and costs $20. Usually one session will get you going. See Class schedule on Classes & Groups page. You can also email us to register or for further information.
Even though named for a knit stitch (the “purl”), our store is for knitters and crocheters alike. We carry a diverse array of tools for both crafts. And all the yarn can be used for both, of course! We do not, however, have as many crochet classes. Crocheters are often more comfortable building on their skills independently. Our Yarn 101 and Intro to Ravelry classes would be good for crocheters, too. Rik teaches introductory Crochet to adults and kids alike. If there is a special crochet technique you’d like to get support on, please let us know and between Rik or Bonnie we can probably set up a special Technique session for you. Email us if there is a particular technique that you’d like to learn beyond Crochet 101.
