1-2 class hours.

The granny square—crochet rite of passage and icon of the 60s. And more fun than a barrel of monkeys, given how quickly you can turn odds and ends of yarn into cute motifs to applique on jeans, join together for a scarf, or assemble into an afghan. The class is geared for those who know the basics of crochet (chain stitch, single crochet) but who have never worked in the round or made motifs.
