Often the Pineapple motif is seen in doilies and tablecloths made with fine cotton thread and tiny steel hooks. Your instructor for this class, crochet expert Sharon Silverman, has designed a pretty and useful lap blanket using worsted-weight yarn and an H/8/5mm hook — tools and materials you are already comfortable with. Next, you’ll be ready to take on the lovely shawl, again with an H hook and, this time, light-weight cotton yarn. The results are breathtaking! In this class, you’ll learn how to:; Identify the structure of the Pineapple motif.; Read a symbol diagram and understand how helpful it can be.; Work special stitches including the shell and chain-5 shell.; Properly start a new skein of yarn.; Create and apply fringe for a wonderful finishing touch. Class includes complete, step-by-step instructions and symbol diagrams for two exclusive projects including the Pineapple Lap Blanket and the Half-Circle Pineapple Shawl.
