In the first of this two-part class, we will cover the basics of crochet and start an easy scarf with worsted weight yarn in no time. On the second night, students will explore more stitches and techniques and will crochet a small cotton washcloth. Materials needed: 1 skein of worsted weight yarn for the scarf, 1 skein of cotton yarn for the washcloth and a size 8 or H crochet hook. Materials are available for purchase from the Yarn Nook at ThunderWillow. Patterns are included in the tuition. Please contact Diane at ThunderWillow for questions about materials before purchasing.

I teach knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet classes at several yarn shops and art centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/St. Croix Valley area. One of my passions is knitting and crocheting with beads. I teach classes at ThunderWillow Community Arts in Hudson, at the Ramsey County and Hudson libraries, as well as through Hudson Community Education.
I have been teaching professionally for seven years. My background as a graphic artist in the publishing industry facilitates my ability to design, write, produce and publish my patterns.
I learned to knit continental or combination style at seven years old from my grandmother, who had to teach me in order to get her own knitting back from me! I live in western WI, with my husband, and the boss of the household, Thomas Edison, our stray kitty who came to stay. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy!
