Class Overview

Never be confused about where to make the next stitch! Crochet expert Charles Voth shows you how to make sense of crochet symbols and diagrams for crochet that’s fast and enjoyable. First, learn essential crochet stitch symbols and find out how they relate to each other and indicate your hook’s path. Then, read row diagrams and tackle ripple and wave stitch patterns with ease. Next, discover how symbols make it easy to read stitches that jump rows and involve various insertion points — like star, shell, spike and popcorn stitches. Move on to diagrams worked in the round and create a square motif for your cowl. Then, see how two-dimensional diagrams make sense of three-dimensional crochet, including flowers and popular Amigurumi toys. Plus, take your hook on a tour of the world as you learn how to read charts from France, Russia, Japan and beyond!
