    Simple and Beautiful Sampler Afghan - Session 5

    Large projects aren’t just for experienced crocheters anymore - if you can make a chain and work the single crochet stitch, you have all the skills you need to join the Simple and Beautiful Sampler Afghan class! Class will meet the first Sunday of every month, from 1-3 p.m. Come to one, several, or all of the classes, depending on your schedule. Learn two new stitches each month, then finish your blocks at home using the handouts we provide during class. We’ll start with a few variations on single crochet, then progress into something a little more challenging as the months go by. The final month we’ll go over sewing or crocheting your blocks together, and how to finish your creation with a fancy edging. When you’re done by the end of the summer, you’ll have either a 36 square baby blanket (if you make one square of each stitch you learn), or a 54" x 44" throw (if you make two squares using each stitch you learn).

    Skill Level: Advanced Beginner / Intermediate

    Materials Needed: You will receive a 10% discount on class materials.
