Learn to crochet and make the coziest, squishiest, and most classic style of blanket! In the first class you'll learn the basics of crochet and make 1 or 2 granny squares in 1 or 2 colors. In the second class you'll practice what you know and learn some fancy tricks for changing colors and seaming!
Required Materials: At least 64 yards total (32 yards each of two colors) of bulky or super bulky weight wool yarn (no dark colors, it's too hard to see!), US O (10-12 mm) or US P–S (15–20 mm) crochet hook, and a darning needle. For our whole blanket (50" x 60") we used 14 balls of Loopy Mango Merino No. 5 (7 of main color + 7 accent colors).
No prior experience necessary!
Students will learn how to: chain, double crochet, work in the round, slip stitch, change colors, read a pattern, follow a chart, seam squares together, and weave in ends.
