Crocheting Kids

Yesterday was the last day of Crochet Club at my local school.  Since mid-October I’ve been teaching many of the 2nd-5th students (and their parents) the basics of crochet.  It has been a fun experience and I hope to do it again next school year.

Our last lesson was all about making hats from the crown down working in spirals using the half-double crochet stitch. One of my students was also learning how to make curlicues to decorate her hat with.

Even if you’ve never taught before, if you get a chance ,share your love of crochet with others.  I’m always amazed how much I learn from my student’s questions.  Seeing thru the eyes of a beginner, after 40+ years of crocheting, is a wonderous thing.
