Easy Floral Cloche

 

This class is one step up from Beginner Crochet. You will practice chain stitch, slip stitch, joining in the round, single crochet, & double crochet to make a hat from the top down. There will be ample time for 1:1 and progress on your hat. The pattern will also include further instructions for a crocheted flower embellishment which also used half-double & treble crochet stitches & scrap yarn in colors of your choice. If there is sufficient interest, I will teach a second class for crochet flower accents.

Continental Style Knitting/Beginner-Session 2

  • One Lupine/Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

 Many of us who learned to knit in North America were taught the English method-sometimes known as “throwing”. If you carry your working yarn in your right hand, this is you. There are other methods of knitting however and one of them is the Continental, or “picking style. Used widely through Scandinavia and parts of Northern Europe in particular, this method of knitting carries the working yarn in the left hand. This method is perfectly suited for knitting in the round and can significantly increase your speed when doing so. It is also useful when doing colorwork.

This class is designed for first time knitters and knitters new to the continental style.

Cost: $30.00

Instructor: Andrea Bozzino
