Event Plaid: Make it Yours with Barry Klein
Crochet is hot right now! Let's capitalize on it and celebrate the beauty and originality of handmade!

Barry Klein shows you a simple way to create a unique fabric from an important event in your life (birthday, wedding, anniversary, or graduation).

Take an important event and turn that date (the month, day, and year numbers) into rows then assign a separate color and yarn to each and crochet a striped openwork filet fabric. Take those same numbers and weave through the openwork to create a plaid.

The simplicity of this technique and idea have you ready to MAKE something special for everyone you love: a simple scarf or wrap, a comfy throw or afghan, or maybe a complete bed cover.
Note: Students must have basic crochet knowledge.
