The Chain Gang - Sept.

$102

with Danica Wooster, Mid-Coast School of Technology Adult Education

Calendar Sep 30, 2020 at 5:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Join Danica for an introductory class in crochet (that’s the one with the hook, not the two needles).  Crochet is a really quick and fun way to make some unique and trendy items, including those faux fur pom-poms!  Learn about the different types of yarn, hooks, stitches, sources, and how to read a pattern. Once you get started, choose a beginner or intermediate pattern to crochet a hat, scarf, or cowl of your very own! The first class includes starter materials; students will then choose their own project and materials with instructor guidance.  This is a course for beginners or those that would like a refresher; the class can run on a Zoom format, if necessary.
