Crochet 102 Workshop: Portofino Water Bottle Bag



Take the skills you already learned in Crochet 101 to the next level.  This is an advanced beginner/Intermediate workshop.  We will crochet the Portofino Water Bottle Tote designed by Alexandra Tavel. During this 3 hour long workshop, we will crochet the entire water bottle tote from start to finish.  We will help you fill the pattern’s yarn and tool requirements before class (please try to come in before the day of the class so there is time to wind your yarn if necessary).

Skills you already need to have: Basic – Slipknot, Chain, SC, DC, SL ST

Skills you will learn: 
Understanding how to read a pattern working in the round, seaming with a tapestry needle, counting stitches, filling pattern requirements, understanding gauge, finishing and blocking your project.

Materials to bring to the workshop:
