APR24: Tunisian Crochet 101
- May 11, 2024 11:30 am

Tunisian crochet or afghan crochet makes a dense and squishy fabric with beautiful texture. It is often described as a combination of traditional crochet and knitting and, for some, easier to learn than either of those crafts. In this class you will learn how to cast on and work basic stitches all while creating a dish/wash cloth. The basic tunisian simple stitch creates a fabric that looks woven, making it perfect for this application. The grid-like appearance lends itself nicely to cross stich embellishments.

Cost: $ 45.00
This scarf is the perfect project for newer knitters who are ready to stretch their knitting muscles and learn a few new skills. You will learn 3 different increase stitches, two decreases, basic lace, how to read a chart (there are also written instructions), and how to place a lifeline. Whew, that sounds like a lot. But don't worry, this relaxing and beautiful design looks way more difficult than it actually is.

Cost: $ 55.00
This asymmetric triangle shawl contains a fun and entertaining blend of textures and colors, and is a project suited for all knitters. Using basic knit stitches, we will create fun texture and lace patterns. By the end of the class series, participants will have completed a beautiful asymmetric triangular shawl incorporating lace, garter stitch, and stockinette stitch techniques. They will gain confidence in their ability to work with multiple colors, read lace patterns, and create stunning wearable pieces. Additionally, participants will leave with the skills and knowledge to tackle more advanced shawl projects in the future.

Cost: $ 50.00
