Week 1

Time Needed: 3 hours, 15 minutes

In the first week of this course, there will be more reading than doing. The first half of the week works on building up your understanding of what crochet is, its terminology, and the supplies you’ll use. During the last two crochet classes, we attempt the two most basic stitches available.

Week 2

Time Needed: 3 hours, 30 minutes

In week two, you are going to learn the rest of the basic crochet stitches, then learn what gauge is, and why it is important. Finally, we’ll finish up with how to weave in the loose ends of yarn in a project, along with a recap of what you learned over the last 14 days.

Week 3

Time Needed: 3 hours, 45 minutes

Learning how to shape a project with increasing and decreasing the number of stitches kicks off the crochet classes in week three. These are essential skills for making anything that isn’t a perfect square (think a tapered hat). Next, you’ll learn how to create a magic circle and the techniques to change colors mid-project. Next, we prepare you to take on your very first crochet pattern: the classic granny square.

Week 4

Time Needed: 5-8 hours

During the last week in our course, we start by making a washcloth from a pattern to see how much you retained from last time. We then touch on a couple of the more complicated stitches, then finish with a blanket pattern that uses a lot of what you’ve learned over the last 4 weeks.
