If you've ever seen double-ended hooks and wondered how they are used, you'll get a chance not only to learn but also to practice your new skills at this month's meeting. We invite all Twin City crocheters to join us Saturday, July 13 from 1pm to 3pm at Prospect Park United Methodist Church.
Carla will give us tips and ticks for working double-end crochet plus provide us with a resource list of patterns, books, and videos - which will be great because finding information about this technique can be a bit challenging! Everyone will then have a chance to practice with a washcloth project where we'll learn the two basic stitches that are absolutely necessary for mastering the technique. To prep for this meeting, you'll will want to brush up on your Tunisian if it's been a while for you.
- Two solid colors of smooth worsted-weight yarn - light or medium colors are easiest to work with. Dishcloth cotton such as Sugar n Cream by Lily would work wonderfully for this project but wool or wool/acrylic blend (such as Encore by Plymouth) would alos be a good choice.
- A double-ended hook, size I (5.5 mm) or J (6.0 mm) - if at all possible. If you aren't able to find a double-ended hook but are interested in this this technique, please come anyway - we'll have a few extra hooks on hand for "loaners". If you do want to purchase one, Clover makes a bamboo double-ended hook - you can find these hooks in many of the local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores or perhaps at your local yarn shop. If you have a Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hook kit, you can assemble a double-ended hook from the kit.
- Tapestry needle and scissors
We hope to see you there!
