Class Overview

Why spend the time seaming motifs together after you've already crocheted them all? Join designer Edie Eckman and skip the seaming using a variety of Join as You Go crochet methods (also known as JAYgo) that let you connect shapes while you work your project. During class, you'll learn how to create five simple shapes: squares, hexagons, triangles, circles and octagons. Along the way, you'll discover how to bring those shapes together using three different types of joining techniques. By the time class is over, you'll know how to plan your own JAYgo projects and carry these time-saving techniques into other crochet!
