What’s more fun for a toddler to wear than a colorful hat? And if those swell ends of colors also get to continue out the top and burst into tassels, all the better! This crochet class is suitable for the beginner who is familiar with the basic crochet stitches. You’ll learn short rows to shape the crown, and a technique to get a stretchy, comfortable brim. You have the choice of a central tassel or a row of multi-colored knots across the top. What could be cuter? The sample is made with Jil Eaton MinnowMerino, but Blue Sky Worsted Cotton also has a wide variety of bright colors to choose from.

Advance preparation may be required, depending on the class topic. Details will be provided at least one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, or more if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for our classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. Classes must have at least three participants in order to run. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
