crochet 201 series: starburst granny square market bag

Hey crocheters, are you ready to enhance your skills and move beyond the traditional granny square? We have the perfect class for you!

Join our talented crochet instructor, Victoria, to make the Starburst Granny Market Tote Bag! This stylish market bag features starburst granny squares that resemble gorgeous sunflower petals. The bag measures approximately H 19" and W 11" and is knitted with cotton yarn, so it is machine washable! Perfect accessory bag to bring along with you to farmer's markets or for a quick trip to the grocery store!

During the first two weeks of class (March 7th + 14th), Victoria will take you through step by step on how to make the starburst granny squares. You will learn more advanced stitches, including a puff stitch and a bobble stitch which will create the look of a sunflower. Class will then break for 1-week (no class on March 21st) and during this time period you will finish making the remainder of the 13 starburst granny squares at home. For the last two classes (March 28th + April 4th), you will bring your finished starburst granny squares with you to class and Victoria will teach you how to make a crochet handle and ultimately how to piece your starburst granny squares together to finish the bag! 

This class is recommended for graduates of our Crochet 101 course, or for those who are confident in their crochet experience. It's a perfect next step for students looking to broaden their crochet skills! Please note, there will be homework assigned during the 1-week break in between classes 2 + 3 (week of March 21st).
