Improve Your Crochet Skills

The classic granny square and working in the round
Learning to work in the round opens up a whole new world of crochet from afghan motifs to hats to socks. In this session you’ll conquer the classic granny square and stitch diagrams. You must know the double crochet stitch before class. *

Increasing and decreasing
Step away from the rectangle and add shape to your crochet fabric. These stitches are used in garment making and to add visual interest to straight row items. A chevron pattern is included with this class. You must be proficient with the single and double crochet stitches before class. *

Textured stitches: post stitches (cables), popcorns, and bobbles 
Make your crochet items pop. Put all your basic skills together to add dimension and depth to your projects with these textured stitches. If you’ve become bored with the basic stitches, this is the perfect class for you. You must be proficient with the double crochet stitch before class. *

Advanced techniques: chainless foundation stitches and no-turning-chain dc and tr 
Do you get frustrated with your foundation chains being too long or short? Learn to create the foundation chain with your first row and it will never happen again! Do your turning chains create a whole in your fabric? Learn a new stitch that eliminates turning chains and looks just like a double or treble crochet stitch. These techniques will transform the way you crochet and give your items a professional look. You must be proficient in basic crochet (i.e., feel confident in your crochet abilities) with a good understanding of how stitches are made in order to take this class. *
