The Alliance Public Library will offer two Introduction to Crochet Classes in the library on Friday, Sept. 20 for students in fifth grade and older. One class will run 2:30-3:30 p.m. and another from 3:30-4:30 p.m. There is a limit of six students in each class; this will be the same class twice so students will only register for one. Participants are asked to register in advance at the library. There is no charge for the class.
Using Skillshare videos and live instruction, students will learn to crochet a simple chain stitch, then use this to create bracelets. They will also learn how to add beads to the bracelets. Time permitting, the single crochet stitch will also be introduced. Yarn and crochet hooks will be provided for this initial class. If students want to bring their own, we will be using a medium weight yarn and a 5.5 mm (US size I or 9) crochet hook.
Students will also have the opportunity to continue with classes and will discuss dates and times. After the initial class, they will supply their own yarn and crochet hooks for specific projects, or can use yarn donated to the library for this purpose.
For more information, or if you are interested but unable to attend, please contact Elaine Connelly Bleisch, Children and Youth Services Librarian, at (308) 762-1387.
