Crochet has numerous advantages, particularly for seniors. Implementing this program will benefit this particular community on a physical level and in terms of state of mind. In this series of classes, you will learn about basic and advanced crochet stitches. Participants will learn how to utilize the single, half-double, and double crochet stitches to make a scarf with fringe. Enjoy, learn, and create!
