Crochet Beret II Fiber Arts Class:
Three Sundays: December 5, 12, 19 from 1-3 PM

Sue's three-session class will give you a great foundation in crochet: You'll learn to crochet a simple beret in the round, try a sampling of different crochet stitches, and start a scarf of your own design.

The crafty gene runs in Sue Appelbaum's family: one of her aunts had a knitting store in Brooklyn, and her mother, aunts, and grandmother taught her to knit and crochet when she was 5 years old. What Sue didn't learn from those wonderful women she taught herself - and now teaches others. She taught at Noe Knit for 4 1/2 years, and joined us at Bookshop West Portal in June 2009.

Three 2-hour sessions, $75
Prerequisites: Just a desire to learn to crochet
Materials: Patterns will be provided. Bring ˜200 yards of worsted weight yarn and size G crochet hook for beret; stash yarn and appropriate crochet hook for stitch samples (bring stash yarn to first session for help choosing the hook size); and 300 yards of yarn and right crochet hook for the scarf.

To sign up for this class, call the store at 415-564-8080 or email
