Crochet Workshops at Yarncon

I’m excited to offer several crochet workshops on April 1 & 2 at Yarncon in Chicago.

I’m teaching a beginning workshop on Tunisian crochet. Above is a photo of some Tunisian crochet stitches worked in several colors. I think this will become a scarf; even with the most basic stitches you can create something beautiful.

Above is a photo of the crochet cables I’ll be teaching in a workshop. I’ll cover how to make cables and offer instructions on how to make a cabled headband or ear warmer. This is a really cool technique and a fun project for anyone who wants to try cables for the first time.

The Tunisian Crochet Lace workshop is an introduction to lace stitches. We will begin making my Skinny Mint Tunisian Scarf (shown above) using the techniques we have learned. This is the perfect spring accessory, light and airy. Add this to your crochet arsenal.

Yarncon is one of my favorite fiber events. Indie dyers and yarn stores sell their wares. It’s a great place to shop for unique yarn, spinning supplies, various knit and crochet supplies, project bags etc. I’m excited to see what the vendors have to offer this year. With so many local yarn stores closing this is an opportunity to see the yarn and fibers in person and still buy from indie shops.

Here is the schedule for my workshops.
