    Really fun class! The teacher was fantastic, and took time to work with each individual student to make sure everything was going smoothly. I walked in with minimal experience, and walked out feeling confident with crochet. Will definitely take future classes!

    Barbara was the instructor! I got a great first class at the Yard School! Barbara has a great friendly, outgoing, encouraging approach to teach beginners like my fellow classmate and someone who is more advance, like myself. I was not bored at any moment, I was not waiting for her. She allowed time for me to try what I just learned and came back in to review my work. Thank you Barbara! you are an amazing lady.

Discover the Best Crochet Classes in NYC

Crochet is a type of fiber art that, similar to knitting, consists of using yarn to create beautifully patterned textiles such as hats, mittens, scarves, bags, and blankets. Unlike knitting, which uses a set of two long needles to stitch fabric together, crochet uses a single hook to loop stitches directly onto a piece of fabric. Crochet hooks come in a variety of sizes and materials, just as yarn comes in various weights and types of material, and it's important to choose the correct type for your project. For example, for larger projects made with heavier yarns – such as afghans or rugs – it is better to use a large plastic hook; while for delicate projects – like baby clothes, lace, and doilies – you would be better off with a small hook made of wood to help prevent the yarn from sliding off. Crochet patterns will tell you what stitches to use for your project as well as the yarn weight and size hook required. 

Why You Should Learn Crochet in NYC

Are you looking for something fun and relaxing to do in your free time? Crochet is a perfect hobby for relieving stress while being productive and expressing your creativity. Instead of watching T.V. or scrolling through social media, you can try crochet as a better, more stress-reducing activity. Some individuals even find the repetitive motions involved in crochet to be meditative or therapeutic

Another bonus is that learning crochet will give you the ability to create beautiful and useful textiles for yourself and others, such as winter accessories or baby items. Many crocheters gift their one-of-a-kind items to friends and family for birthdays, winter holidays, baby showers, housewarmings, etc. You can even make a side hustle out of selling your crochet on websites like Etsy, Amazon Handmade, or Facebook Marketplace. If you find the right niche, you could even make a part or full-time job out of selling your crochet. For instance, baby toys or stuffed toys are among some of the bestselling crocheted items on Etsy.

In addition to being a fun hobby, learning to crochet will plug you into a larger community of fiber artists and crafters. You can join a local crochet club to meet regularly with crocheters who work on projects together and share tips and tricks to help each other improve. Your local library and Facebook Groups are good places to start when searching for a crochet club near you. The Crochet Guild of America is another club worth looking into as a way to connect with crocheters on a larger scale. As a national non-profit organization, The Crochet Guild of America provides members the opportunity to increase their crochet knowledge and connect with others, as well as access to a library of unique designs and patterns. You can join a local chapter to connect in person with crocheters in your area, attend informative meetings and workshops, and have the opportunity to donate items such as crocheted afghans and clothing to local charities.

If you would like to take an in-person crochet class, you may be interested in Tabletop Accessories offered at 92nd Street Y in Manhattan.

Virtual Crochet Classes & Schools

While in-person crochet classes are often held at craft stores, fiber arts workshops, or community centers, virtual classes can be taken from anywhere, as long as you have a computer and Internet access. Virtual classes offer the flexibility to work from the comfort of your own home that many learners appreciate. In addition to saving you time by eliminating your commute to class, you may find more options with online crochet classes since you are not limited to your area. The drawback to taking a virtual crochet class is that you often have to provide your own materials and supplies. 

The class Virtual Workshop: Crochet Hexagon Motifs, offered by Brooklyn Craft Company, is for all skill levels to learn how to crochet geometric shapes, similar to granny squares but in a hexagon motif. Students will learn how to crochet in the round to create these hexagons, which is a great launching pad for completing other crochet projects.
