Experienced Beginner

 

In this class we will learn to crochet from a pattern while making some little flower motifs.  Crochet patterns can be written in abbreviations, or as a diagram of symbols.  We will cover all the information needed to interpret both formats.  Your crocheted flowers can be used as an ornament or to embellish another piece.  After this class you will be ready to take on any crochet project that uses a pattern.
