I'm not sure if I have told you here on the blog, or just over on Facebook. But I am teaching a crochet class at my local library. So over the past few days, I have been creating a "syllabus" and I am using that term lightly to help organize the class. Here is one of the first things I plan on working with my group.
I'm calling them swatches, small dishcloths, coasters, test pieces or whatever you would like. This is so that the student can get familiar with a stitch and complete something without being overwhelmed.
This is cotton yarn worked with a H hook. The top left is single crochet, top right is half double crochet, bottom left double crochet, and bottom right is a granny square.
