Epic Road Trip Wrap Crochet-A-Long
You've gone on the Great Tennessee Yarn Tour, got your hands on a new pattern, and collected all the mini-skeins...now what? Come to Walther Handmade in September as we learn how to crochet the Epic Road Trip Wrap!
Time & Location
Sep 02, 11:00 AM – Sep 23, 1:00 PM
Walther Handmade, 316 Trenton St, Harriman, TN 37748, USA
About the event
Join us on Saturdays in September from 11AM - 1PM as we crochet the "Epic Road Trip Wrap" designed by Robin Adams. This wrap is a new pattern, designed specifically for the 2023 Great Tennessee Yarn Tour. Tourists who participated received a copy of this pattern with their tote bag; however, the crochet-a-long is open to anyone who wants to participate!
This is a crochet-a-long, not a standard "how to" crochet class. Participants should be comfortable with the basics of crochet: how to chain, how to single crochet, and how to double-crochet. The first week we'll walk through the pattern together and practice special stitches. Participants can come back each of the following Saturdays to enjoy time with yarnie friends, go over any questions or issues, and continue crocheting the wrap together!
Date & Time: Saturdays, September 2, 9, 16, & 23; 11AM - 1 PM each day.
Cost: The Crochet-A-Long is free, but space is limited! Register to save your spot!
Instructor: Jillian Walther
