Instructor: Ms. Anamaria Here is the summary for the club. Below it is the summary for me: Crochet/Knitting and Paper folding In this club we focus on learning basic crochet or knitting techniques. This includes learning how to read charts. Students choose between knitting or crochet to start. They have option of learning the other later. Squares are the main building blocks for all of the projects. Projects will be up to the students to choose. They range from a scarf, book cover to a basic shirt. There will also be small non-square projects like mustaches, flowers and balls. Focusing on squares gives participants a quick project that can easily be completed during club time after the first few sessions. It also allows for lots of color without having to change or join yarn. Small projects like these can easily be done anywhere. The possibilities are endless for completed projects. A completed scarf can easily become a blanket later on if they want with the simple addition of more squares. If time allows later in the semester and there is interest from the students, more stitches will be taught. For those wanting a break from crochet or knitting there will also be the option of folding paper into different and fun objects. A different project will be offered each week. These will include paper strip folding. Strips will make the German star (also known as Froebel star) and the “lucky star”, along with other shapes. Standard note paper will also be used. Some basic origami made from square paper will also be taught. The goal is to have a fun time and learn new things. I have been knitting and crocheting for many years. I do not believe that the first project one should make when learning a new skill is a scarf (unless you want to). Flexibility and options are big for me. Hence my approach to teaching modular methods. Modular methods allow many different objects to be made from a simple shape repeated multiple times.
