Never before has Uncommon Threads had such a variety of crochet classes available! From Lyle’s Swan Lake Shawl Crochet-a-long to Jorel’s Tunisian Series, with Small Project Saturday and Embrace the Hook: Learn to Crochet in between, you’ll find yourself seriously tempted by this often-maligned craft.
Or, push your boundaries in other directions: Jean’s new Brave New Knitters KAL series guides novice knitters through Tin Can Knits’ Simple Collection patterns. Try your hand at weaving with Laura, and introduce knitting and crochet to the next generation of stitchers with The Knit Club for kids.
The first signs of spring are everywhere, from irresistible new yarns to exciting classes for knitters, crocheters and weavers. You’ll be seduced by the elegant spring yarns from Rowan on our shelves now, and the stunning, yet wearable, designs in Rowan Magazine 55.
