Knitting, Crochet, and Felting

Knitting, Crochet, Felting
ages 7 and up

Each child will receive their own knitting needles to learn to knit. Using colorful yarn kids will create small and simple projects while learning knitting and purling.Crochet is a lot like knitting but with just one hook. I will show the students that using different sized hooks and techniques produce different looks. I have many books and magazines for the students to explore. We will be making "book worms," a simple crocheted bookmark that I learned to make in fourth grade with my homeroom teacher.(she's STILL making bookworms with her classes!) Felting is a fun and slightly messy way to use wool. Wool gets dipped into water and a drop of dish soap gets added, students then manipulate the wet wool to shape it into a flat piece or a into bowl shape. the flat pieces can be cut and sewn together to make all sorts of other crafts, or pieces of beautiful art work
