This class is a continuation of Crochet Stitch Sampler and the stitches will increase in complexity. In this class we will learn one to two different stitches each week, depending on the complexity of the stitch. Students will learn how to read more complex patterns and to calculate the repeats of a pattern to enable them to make squares of any size. Students can make dishcloths or squares to be sewn together in an afghan if they desire. Bring a crochet hook size H or larger and worsted weight (size 4) smooth yarn. Please no dark‐colored yarns. Students wishing to make dishcloths should be sure to bring cotton yarn.

Sashiko is a form of embroidery from Japan that was used by the working class as far back as the 16th century. Today it has evolved into a beautiful and decorative art form. The white thread on an indigo blue background gives it a distinctive look. It is made using large thread and big stitches that are very easy to work and see. Students will make a square of stitchery that can be made into a pillow or appliqued onto something else such as a tote bag. NOTE: A materials fee of $25 will be payable to the instructor at the beginning of class.
