Specialty Stitches: October 13 Meeting Preview

Have you heard about speciality stiches but not sure how to make them or what they'll look like? If that's the case, then this is the meeting for you! We invite you to join us Saturday, October 13 from 2:30PM to 4:30PM at Prospect Park United Methodist Church.

Crochet truly does have an endless variety of stitches and in this meeting, Maxine will show us how to make the variations shown in this picture plus give some options for the starting stitch in a dc row. From left to right, the swatches are regular dc, linked dc, front-post and back-post dc, and extended dc. A whole family of double crochets!

After the demo, then the fun begins! We'll split into smaller groups for the remainder of the class, with each group including a member of the program committee to assist and answer questions. During this part of the meeting, everyone will have a chance to practice the stitch variations plus exchange ideas about how to use these stitch variations in projects.

To participate in the class you'll need to bring:
  • Several ounces of worsted weight yarn (2 to 4 ounces) - don't bring a dark color, it's too hard to see the stitches
  • An approxiately size hook to work with the yarn; for most people, size I9 or J10   
We hope to see you there!
