  • half double crochet
  • double crochet
  • triple crochet
  • how to use a stitch dictionary
  • how to read a pattern
  • North American vs English terminology
Skill prerequisites

None, but please advise the store if you are left handed so custom materials can be prepared for you.

Homework

There is no homework required to prepare for the first class. A moderate amount of homework will be assigned at each class to prepare you for the next session.
