Crocheting heirloom-worthy lace is easier than you think!

During class, Jennifer will guide you stitch by approachable stitch through a number of classic patterns: mesh, filet, pineapple stitch, V-stitch, the Irish leaf, the Irish rose, Bruges lace, hairpin lace, Solomon's knot and more. Along the way, you'll learn the skills you need to confidently and accurately read charts, and Jennifer will provide a stitch-by-stitch breakdown you can follow comfortably to success. Plus, when you're done, you'll have an amazing resource you can refer back to whenever, forever!
Meet Jennifer Hansen, full-time designer and teacher, Craftsy veteran and your guide to getting past the granny square. Jennifer's first lesson on classic crochet openwork begins with a primer on how to select yarn, ply and hook size before focusing on a single technique: the basic trellis.
There are an infinite amount of possibilities in one single, simple grid. Jennifer shows you how mesh crochet can turn charts into works of art. She reviews and teaches how to read charts for the filet crochet technique, along with other variations, and ends by demonstrating two new stitches.
The pineapple stitch has been around for hundreds of years yet has never gone out of style. Jennifer begins this timeless technique by first walking through how to recognize symbols and follow a diagram, then demonstrates how a pineapple and V-stitch create a simple edging.
