Create complex looks with simple techniques that let you crochet changing colors! Designer Marly Bird is here to help you every step of the way. During class, you'll start with two classic colorwork patterns: chevrons and Catherine's wheel. Then, learn how to create captivating crochet spirals, fun 3-D flowers and lacy interwoven crochet. Want even more dimension? Marly guides you step by step through beautiful braided stripes and a variety of slip-stitch embellishments. You'll also learn to manage multiple live yarns and keep your rows and edges tidy. And by the end of class, you'll have a colorwork toolkit you can use to make any crochet project pop!

To Marly, a bi-craftsy girl who both knits and crochets, the yarn is the star, not how you work with it. She's creative director for Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns and the co-author of Curvy Crochet (Leisure Arts, 2011). You've seen her designs in Knit Simple, Interweave Crochet, Knitscene, Inside Crochet, Wild Fiber and Petite Purls, and in the books Perfectly Plus and Knitting Plus. In her spare time she raises three kids in suburban Denver.
