Granny squares are a perennial favorite of crocheters worldwide and with this class you can learn 15 unique designs that illustrate just how creative you can be with squares, hexagons and octagons. Not only will you learn tricks and tips for making the motifs but new techniques you can use in all of your crochet projects.

The designs are classified as easy, intermediate and experienced—5 of each—but all you need to know are the basic crochet stitches. Working alongside crochet expert Ellen Gormley, you'll complete all the designs quickly and easily. Then you can create all 3 of the lovely projects to reinforce your newly acquired skills.

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Crochet 15 unique squares, hexagons and octagons for all skill levels.
  • Create interesting design elements by working behind stitches.
  • Start with an octagon and end with a hexagon.
  • Add color and surface texture to your motif with slip stitches.
  • Use a Standing Join to begin the round with a new color.
  • Execute the Invisible Join.
  • Start motifs with the Magic Ring method.
Class includes complete instructions to make three exclusive projects: Dana Lapghan, Becca Scarf and the Jocelyn Tote.

Good class, instructor went a little to fast but I read the pattern as she was working the squares and that help a great deal. I love learning how to crochet the different squares. I am going to try to make a Afghan out of the many different squares. Thanks for the class. I will be taking more of her classes.
