Beginners’ Crochet Class

Giant Granny Square

A granny square in progress

There will be another wonderful beginners’ class run by Tríona on Saturday 28th of July from 2pm to about 4pm.

During the class you will learn the basics, how to hold the hook and yarn, how to do chain stitch, how to do double and treble stitches. By the end of the class you should be well on your way to starting your first granny square.

The class will cost €5 for non-members and is free for members. There will be an optional cost for materials of €5 for which you will get a ball of yarn and an appropriate sized hook.

If you would like to bring your own materials, I would suggest you bring a ball of plain double-knit yarn and a 5.0mm hook. The people in the yarn shop will be able to help you. Yarn and hooks can be bought from a number of shops, including The Constant Knitter on Francis St, This Is Knit in the Powerscourt Centre, Springwools in Walkinstown, Stitch in Beaumont, and the Bernina Sewing Shop on Parnell St. Staff in all shops are helpful, so ask for help choosing yarn.
