Broomstick Crochet Lace Scarf Class

Crochet Lace ScarfDebi Botteron Lawson will teach us how to make a beautiful scarf, lacy and textured, with the age-old broomstick crochet method. As you choose the piece you will be making, you should think about making a cowl, longer infinity scarf, or just a regular scarf with fringe. Also if you use a solid color, you will see more stitch definition but a variegated yarn can be very rich and fashion forward.
broomstick lacy crochet scarf
Class: Sunday July 19th from 1 to 3 PM. Fee: $10 to reserve your space. You will also be purchasing 1 skein of yarn of your choice. You will need any size crochet hook and at least 1 Size 50 (25mm) knitting needle(sets are $7.45).

Join us for a fun afternoon – this is a beginning class and the method is so different from either knitting or crocheting that if you have done either, you will probably pick this up very quickly!

This class is sponsored by Yarn Designers Boutique LLC. Please contact us by phone 909 584-9715 or email yarn@verizon.net to register or with questions.

Classes will be in the Co-op room at 439 W Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear City, CA 92314. For more information about our company, please see our website: www.yarndesignersboutique.com
