Roving, Roving, Roving with Hooks or Sticks - CANCELLED LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Okay… maybe the song is a little bit of a stretch but come on… it’s funny… rove rove rove your boat… um… hooks…   

We all know the joy of holding a new bundle of roving in our hands. The endless possibilities that these blank canvases of fabulous fiber conjure before our mind’s eye start our fingers to twitching and our thoughts turn to spindles, wheels, and rug latches. It’s a beautiful thing! But I submit for your consideration the addition of wielding a crochet hook or knitting needles and making FAB projects without all of that waiting for the roving to be spun into yarn. Instant gratification! Who doesn’t love that?   

We will learn to work with roving to create yarn (sans wheels and spindles!) of varying weights so you can customize your finished project to reflect your own personal style and flare. Don’t have your own style and flare? That’s okay… we’ll show you some tricks along the way to use this FAB fun and unique way of working with roving to create projects you'll be proud of… and make your friends jealous of your new rove-stitching prowess!

Goals: 

  • Learn which end of the hook to work with.
  • Split and pre-draft roving  
  • Crochet a basic swatch with un-spun roving   
  • Create your first project
Skills Required: Must know basic crochet (ch, sc, hdc, dc) and knit stitches

Please note:  This class will be held in a heated tent.
