You Can Shape It!
February 22nd 2:00pm – 5:00pm
Understanding how to increase and decrease stitches is a great way to upgrade your crochet skills! Whether it’s a very simple stitch pattern or a multi-row lace, there is usually a way to add or subtract stitches, but how do you know the best way? In this class we will study how to analyze a stitch pattern in terms of the number of stitches and rows in a pattern repeat, how stitches align, what factors determine whether you shape in the middle or edges of a row, and much more. We will practice the techniques by working a variety of stitch patterns, easy and intermediate. The knowledge you gain in this class will allow you to understand patterns, change them if you need to, and even create your own designs.
We’re also offering a Master Class Two-Pack! Take ANY two Master Classes for just $125! Mix and match teachers and crafts. (Valid for use within one year of purchase date.)
