Some knitters don’t like to crochet. I know of one knitter who doesn’t even own a crochet hook. This baffled me, for there are many good crochet applications that knitters can utilize to put a different flare into their knitting. Learning to wield a crochet hook will open the door to another cast-on method, as well as bind-off options. This class will cover the crocheted cast-on, a couple of different ways to work a crocheted bind-off, including a picot bind-off using a crochet hook. We will cover the slip and single crochet. There will be a hand out with vocabulary explanation and pictures of the stitches. Please bring the homework detailed below, the extra yarn and the needles you used to make the sample. I will bring crochet hooks for everyone to use. Crochet hooks are also handy for quickly making small repairs or picking up a dropped stitch.
