I love crochet! I try new things all the time. But not everyone feels that way. Maybe you know basic crochet stitches but are unsure about moving forward. This class is for you! We will try some new stitches, make some squares, and play with colors, all just for fun! Ever tried crocheting in the round, overlay versus inset mosaic crochet, crocheting in the front and back loops, working with twisted stitches, or reverse single crochet? We’ll try these things in this class.

We’ll be working with some squares from the current and ongoing Moogly 2022CAL (with permission). Because the class is about learning different crochet stitches, it aims to provide inspiration rather than a finished project. You will make parts of blanket squares; you may decide to finish them and make a whole blanket, or you may decide to forget the whole thing, your choice!

Participants should bring about 2 oz. in each of 4 colors of worsted weight yarn (4 wt) that go together. At least one should be a lighter color for background and one should be darker for emphasis, with the two other colors in between. Students should also bring an appropriate-sized hook (I or J) and their own supplies such as scissors.
