Class Overview

Better crochet fabric doesn't have to mean big changes! In fact, you're probably just a set of simple tips, tricks and techniques away from the results you want. Join designer Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby as he guides you through it all, starting with an easier way to read charts. Moving on, you'll discover new stitches you can substitute for tidier edges or foundation chains. Dreaming of smooth, drapey fabric? Find out how linked stitches can close the gaps and make it happen. Then, add some "wow" techniques to your toolkit, such as crochet I-cord. Shannon will also guide you through some must-have math shortcuts for getting the perfect fit, and you'll even end class with new takes on popular stitch patterns.
