Crochet: Getting Creative With Granny Squares

$60

with Trisha Morey

Merrymeeting is very sorry to report that this class is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.

You would be amazed at just how many things can be made using such small panels of material. The options are pretty limitless. Most of us know that we can make blankets, throws, or lap blankets with them, but did you know that we can make items like overalls, pants, shorts, vests, slippers, shoulder bags, shawls, belt pouches, or a box with them as well? We will be choosing three uncommon things to make out of a long list of items and over the next few weeks, we are just really going to have a lot of fun with this! If you love crochet and you love getting creative with it, you will be right in your element here. Prerequisite: You will need to have some prior knowledge of basic common stitches, however, if you can make ANY kind of granny square, then you should have no trouble taking this class. Watch Video #1 before the first class. Available September 1. Video and materials list will be made available to students upon registration. This class will be offered through Zoom or Webex. Students must have an audio and video enabled computer, tablet or smartphone to participate. Merrymeeting will send you information about accessing the class prior to its start date.
