Level: Intermediate Description of Workshop Levels
Technique: Crochet

Do you love the look of Irish Crochet but feel intimidated by it? Don’t be! In this introductory class, you’ll learn to make the basic Irish Crochet rose and leaf motifs. You’ll also learn to make a background for joining your Irish Crochet motifs together into a project. To finish it off, you’ll work a simple Irish Crochet edging around the edges of your assembled project. Irish Crochet is typically worked with cotton crochet thread, but if you’re not comfortable using crochet thread and steel crochet hooks, cotton yarn can be used instead. Come and learn this beautiful crochet technique!

Materials you are required to bring: 200 yards of white or light-colored size 10 cotton crochet thread, size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook, scissors.
