Modern Irish Crochet 1: Making Motifs with Myra Wood
The popularity of Irish Crochet has exploded around the globe in recent years! Magazines like Duplet from Russia feature the long-treasured technique with a modern twist; multi-color versions that rival any paintbox. Rather than use tiny hooks and cobweb threads to create these motifs, we will use either fingering weight yarn or size 10 crochet thread. It's up to you and which you're more comfortable with. We will learn how to interpret Russian charts and symbols, as we try out select motifs (to join later*). Tons of motifs will be shown on their own and combined into finished projects.

*Note: We are focusing on the motifs in this class; to connect them, Modern Irish Crochet II: Putting it all Together will teach you what you need to know.

Note: Must be comfortable reading crochet charts.
