Crochet 101 is a hands-on crochet lesson designed specifically for absolute beginners to the art of crochet. Students will learn how to make a slip knot, chain, and do basic crochet stitches, as well as learning about the basic tools and supplies needed to crochet. Students may enroll or unenroll from the class at any time, allowing them to progress at their own speed and comfort level. A relaxed, sociable learning environment is encouraged to help students tackle the challenges of learning...
Students should ultimately feel confident in their ability to make a slipknot, crochet a chain, and ultimately produce a simple single or double crochet stitch (US terminology). Students may enroll in the ongoing class as many or as few times as they feel is necessary to accomplish this level of proficiency.
No formal homework is assigned, but students are encouraged to practice outside of the regular meeting time to build their confidence and skill before the next lesson.
