For anyone interested in the crafter’s circle, we held our first group session on October 30 and worked on crochet projects as well as learning to crochet different stitches and patterns.
For instance, we shared this pattern Ripple Granny Square Blanket
And worked on granny squares, which, regretfully I’m a bit rusty on that pattern, so here is a youtube video which will show you how, if you are interested in learning, this is a great pattern for beginners.
How To Crochet a Granny Square
We will work on other projects and craft forms as we go, such as knitting, needlework, beading, making dream catchers, etc. all suggestions for crafts are gratefully appreciated. And if you know a craft you would like to share, please tell us.
If you are interested in joining a crafter’s circle at the library, and can only attend in the evening, please let me know and I will work on scheduling another group.
Please see the buttons at the top of the page, we have several pages with information pertaining to the library and surrounding community.
