What It's All About
Learn how to crochet for complete beginners. No experience required! In this class, you will learn how to work the basic types of crochet stitches. In three one-hour classes, you’ll learn the chain stitch, single crochet, and double crochet. We’ll show you how to read a pattern, how to work the stitches, and how to use locking stitch markers to keep your edges straight. You bring a ball (or two) of cotton yarn and a hook, and we’ll show you how to turn your yarn into three different washcloths, each with a different type of stitch. (And don’t worry if you’re left-handed, you can still crochet - we’ll show you how!) The online classes will be recorded for you to review later and we also provide a series of helpful video tutorials for extra assistance between classes.
This class will take place online. There are three sessions to attend and each session will be 90 minutes, over three consecutive weeks. Want to join us?

Can I take this class?
This class is intended for absolute beginners (perhaps you've never held a crochet hook before?) and will also benefit self-taught crocheters who want to understand the fundamentals better. One registration per participant is required with the exception of younger participants or anyone with special needs who may require assistance from another household member. Please contact email@example.com if you have questions or concerns.
You'll need these materials for class:
Resource Book: purchase and download the pdf version of the Churchmouse Classroom Learn to Crochet Companion booklet. If you prefer to purchase a print copy, we have them in stock. We will refer to this booklet throughout the class and consider it to be an essential resource.
Pattern: your project for this class is a series of four squares (dishcloths) that you will use to practice each of the basic stitch patterns. The fourth square is a variation and the pattern instructions are included in a handout.
Yarn: you'll need approximately 100g of a worsted/medium weight cotton yarn. We recommend: 2 balls of Rowan Handknit Cotton, or 2 balls of Rowan Denim Revive or 1 skein of Berroco Pima 100. Note: you will need to wind the Berroco Pima 100 into a ball before class. Here's a "how to at home" link.
