Class Description


A creative practice such as crocheting is best learned with others, particularly as your ambitions begin to outpace your technical knowledge. When your only method of advancing your skills come from flat diagrams and instructions in a book, the prospect of making new garments can seem daunting.

Master crafter Vickie Howell will help you visualize and create beautiful hats in this fun, informative class. Join us, and you’ll learn:

  • How to crochet a toboggan hat and a granny square hat
  • How to crochet ear flaps and braided ties for your toboggan hat
  • How to crochet the crown and ribbed brim for your granny square hat
It can be hard to set aside time for your creative outlet, and even harder to put time and energy into doing the research and legwork to advance your skills. Vickie Howell turns this formula on its head. Your craft should be your inspiration, and learning new techniques should be fun, attainable, and energizing.
