Class, No Prerequisite

Small Classroom

Needle Arts, Knitting & Crocheting


This class is for those who have never done crochet before and those who haven’t crocheted for a while and need a refresher.

This class will include:

  • Learning the six basic crochet stitches that are the foundation of all crochet and crocheting a swatch to practice them
  • How to work crochet flat and in the round
  • Learning ways to start and finish projects
  • How to read basic crochet patterns

Along the way you’ll learn about other crochet styles you may wish to explore and see some advanced techniques that will be covered in future classes.


You will make a granny square coaster using most of the basic stitches learned in the class.


A $12 material fee included in the cost of the class covers a set of crochet hooks and all other materials needed for the class.

Instructors or Guides

Robyn Weimer

Robyn learned to crochet from her grandmother in high school, along with many other needle arts including macrame, needlepoint, crewel, and cross stitch. She did many crochet projects over several years, until her children and career squeezed out the time to continue. After retiring in 2019, she resumed crochet and other needle arts and gratefully found that the muscle memory came back quickly. After moving back to the Pacific Northwest in 2021, she joined BARN and now participates in the Fiber Arts, Woodworking, and Tech Lab studios. She’s interested in learning new skills and finding opportunities for cross-studio collaboration.
