Crochet 2 (4th-8th)

Teacher: Vanessa McGuire

Description: This class will build on the basic skills learned in Crochet I. Projects will focus on the double crochet stitch, which is the most common stitch in crochet. Students will make a variety of projects, both small and large. Working at home will be necessary some weeks in order to finish the projects assigned in a timely manner. The student needs to be adept at the single crochet stitch in order to enroll in this class. Please feel free to email me if you have any doubts about your child’s skills. Yarn for most projects will need to be brought from home.
