In this class, we will learn to use basic crochet stitches to create objects that are beautiful, imaginative, and minimalist.
- We will first learn to crochet in a round to create a crocheted rock cozy.
- We will then learn to crochet a flower that will be used to adorn the crocheted rock. We will also learn other methods to further embellish the crocheted rock with more crochet and stitched components.
- Next, we will leverage what we have learned by crocheting the flower to create a simple crocheted flower necklace. We will also learn methods to further embellish the necklace with more crochet and stitched components.
- Finally, we will learn to create rag yarn by tearing strips of old bed sheets and then use this upcycled raggedy yarn to crochet coasters. For those who are up for the challenge, a pattern and demo will also provide instruction on how to continue crocheting in the round to complete a large sized rug.
Knowing how to create a slip knot and a chain stitch are the two basic skills that will help you experience success in CROCHETOLOGIE. Before coming to class, you are encouraged to practice the slip knot and chain stitch. Here is a link to a basics video that reviews these techniques.
- crochet cotton
- other fine (thin) yarns and strings that you'd like to try
- special findings (like buttons, beads, etc)
- crochet hook: 3.5 mm
- crochet hook: 6.0 mm
- tapestry needle
- felt scraps
- 1 flat bed sheet (the older and more faded the better)
