Not your grandma’s crochet class

I am very excited to share the news that I am teaching a crochet class! My first class is on July 2nd and I created a simple square dishcloth to teach the basics and get the students started. I hope to share my passion for crochet and inspire my students to use this new skill to create anything they want! I will also be posting class information, patterns, and resources here for my students to access as needed. So, here is the pattern for our first project:
