Class Experience

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.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Crochet hooks (Size "J" or larger for absolute beginners): $1-$5 Worsted weight yarn (Red Heart Super Saver is ideal): $3-$6 Scissors: $1-$5
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Once students have demonstrated proficiency in the slipknot, chain, and at least one crochet stitch, they will be encouraged to advance to more challenging lessons.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Adult supervision is recommended for handling scissors.
We may reference the following websites for patterns, tutorials, and other informative resources. These websites do not require the submission of any personal information.
