Hybrid Crochet (aka Tunisian Crochet) Workshop in Hayward November 2

Delve into a hybrid crochet technique which is easy for beginners and interesting even for experienced crocheters! Hybrid Crochet, also known as Tunisian crochet, uses two passes to create a single row, building up stitches on your crochet hook, then working them off on the return pass. It creates a soft, squishy fabric in a process that feels like a mix between knitting and crochet, with endless possibilities for texture and lace.

This workshop will take place at Aranea Craft Studio, 943 C Street in Hayward, CA.

Prerequisites: No experience necessary, but people with traditional crochet skills may cover more stitch patterns

A Note on Pricing: There is a sliding scale for low-income makers, on the honor system.

Materials Needed: 40 yards smooth worsted or aran weight yarn, G or H crochet hook: a long-handled Tunisian hook, a hook with attached cable, or a smooth-handled hook (no rubber grips or thumb grooves).

Teacher Background: I have worked in the yarn industry since 2002, as a yarn shop employee and later manager, teacher, pattern designer, and event host. I have taught hundreds of people how to crochet and refined the process to make it easier for my students.

Cancellation Policy: If the organizer cancels for any reason, students will be offered a choice of transferring to another workshop or receiving a full refund. If a student cancels with at least 72 hours notice, they can choose to receive an 80% refund or transfer to another class.
