Basket Weave scarf or Cowl (Adventurous Beginner/Intermediate)

Basket Weave Scarf or CowlTo create the Basket Weave stitch in crochet you make 'post stitches'. These are also used for crocheted cables, so taking this class will add many more stitch patterns to your crochet arsenal. Start on a scarf or cowl (or blanket!) using any weight of yarn in this class.

The Virus Shawl (Intermediate)

Virus ShawlOver 4,800 projects on Ravelry must mean something. This is a lovely crocheted shawl that can be made in many different yarns. However, the pattern is nothing more than a one page chart. This class will help you decode that chart and open up a whole new world of crochet designs that are increasingly written in chart form.

Dates/Times: Friday, March 23, 2:30 – 4:30 pm
                              OR Saturday, March 31, 10:00 am – Noon
