Fabulous Free Form Knit/Crochet with Margaret Hubert
Students will make a small bag, while learning how to combine knit and crochet in a wonderful free-form method. While it is fun to combine, if a student is only comfortable in one or the other, it is still ok to take this class. Students will learn to line and complete their bag. With an extensive booklet and the inner lining for their bag, students leave with the knowledge to finish on their own.
Materials fee: $3.00
Note: This class begins on Thursday afternoon and concludes on Friday morning.

Homework pieces, more yarn in compatible colors, sewing thread and needle, and large T straight pins.

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
