Upcoming Crochet Classes in MN

New & Coming Soon!

Crochet Club

Come crochet something you’ve always wanted to make!

I’m so excited to announce the beginning of Crochet Club!

Your ticket includes 5 classes (held over 6 weeks to accommodate 1 make-up class). Crochet club meets once a week on Tuesdays beginning March 31 and ending May 5 from 6 – 8 pm.

Please bring a bag for your projects & supplies each week. I recommend a sturdy, reusable shopping bag. But a plastic bag also works just fine.

Please note: Supplies are not included.

Choose your learning track:

Track 1: Beginner crochet

You will make 5 different hats or cowls and learn all the essential beginner crochet skills: working in the round, working in rows, switching colors, reading a pattern, single crochet stitch, double crochet stitch and half double crochet stitch.

Supplies:

Option 1: Bring a 12 – 15 mm crochet hook and 1 – 2 skeins of super bulky yarn to each class. Your last hat will need 2 skeins of bulky yarn and a 9 mm hook. Faux fur poms available for $5 each.

Option 2: Purchase a kit at your first class for $60 with all the supplies you need for the entirety of Crochet Club. (2 hooks, 6 skeins of yarn, 5 poms)

Track 2: Freestyle

Recommended for those who have previous crochet knowledge.

Option 1: Bring supplies to make something you’ve always wanted to try but didn’t know how (blanket, garment, etc.). Get in touch with me before class to discuss projects and supplies (contact through EventBrite). I highly recommend choosing a Firefly Hook pattern (my designs) so I can give you the best instructions possible. But I am willing to help you through another pattern if you prefer. Click here to view all Firefly Hook designs.

Option 2: Come to the first class and purchase a kit ($20) to get started on a project then decide what to work on for the rest of Crochet Club. This is a great option if you aren’t sure about your skill level or what to get for supplies.

The Hats

(photo above, left to right)

Hat 1: Learn to work in rows, change colors, half double crochet stitch.

Hat 2: Learn to work in the round and in rows, double crochet stitch (and post stitch, depending on skill level).

Hat 3: Learn to work in rows, work in the back loop and 3rd loop, half double crochet. This hat takes a little longer than the rest. It may need to be finished at home.

Hat 4: Learn to work in the round, single crochet (GREAT for first-time crocheters).

We will meet in the conference room at the St. Michael Dunn Bros. Feel free to arrive between 5:00 and 5:30 but don’t worry if you can’t get there until 6:00 – there will be plenty of time to complete your project.

All supplies included with your ticket.

Drinks and snacks are an additional cost and optional.

There will be kits (yarn, hook, pom, pattern) for sale so you can have the supplies you need to make another hat. (Cost: $20 – $30 depending on yarn choice.)
