Classes Taught by Laurinda

(contact her about teaching at your shop or event)

Learn to Crochet Sampler Series 

Learn the basics of crochet or take your skills to the next level. Join us for a weekly crochet class based on Rowan’s Learn to Crochet Sampler Afghan, taught by the author. Classes will run January through May, focusing on a new Chapter in the book each month. Each week you will start a new block from the Sampler, learning new stitches and skills. Sign up for all 4 classes each month, or pick and choose the stitches you want to learn.
$25 for each class or $80 for 4 classes, runs 4 months

Beyond the Basics – Where to Stick It! 
Have you learned the basic crochet stitches and are ready for the next step? The hardest part about learning to crochet (and read crochet patterns) is knowing where to stick your hook! There are so many options! Come learn what it means to work into just one loop, in a chain space, between the stitches, and around the stitches. You’ll even make button holes as we create a small sampler Cowl. 

Learn to Crochet (for Knitters or Spinners)
Have you always wanted to learn to crochet, or just want to add a little crochet to your knitted projects? We will begin with the basic chain, the foundation of any crochet project. Then learn how to work back into that chain with single crochet and double crochet stitches as you create your first simple project. Then practice seaming two sides together to create Fingerless Mitts, or keep going to make a scarf! 

Eternal Knot Cable
Inspired by the Celtic Knotwork of ancient times, the Eternal Knot has no beginning or end, thought to represent the uninterrupted cycle of life. During this class you will learn to use front and back post stitches to create cable patterns in crochet. The class will include instructions to turn your Eternal Knot swatch into a small bag or purse. 
Crocheted Cables Over the Edge 
Break away from the flat edges of standard crocheted cables to create braid-like cables worked right up to the edge of the fabric. In this class you will learn how to use front and back post stitches to create edgeless cables of various sizes, work back into skipped stitches, and even make them reversible, as well as tricks for smoother cables.

To Infinity and Beyond – Design A Cowl With a Twist 
Put a twist on the long loops of the typical “infinity scarf.” Use the stitch pattern of your choice to design a true infinity or “Mobius” cowl where each round forms a figure eight or infinity symbol, creating a twist in the loop. Learn how expanding each round from the center out will affect your stitch pattern and how to adjust your stitches to look their best on both sides of the work whether working into a chain or foundation single crochets. 

Introduction to Reversible Intarsia 
Frustrated by crocheted colorwork that only looks good on one side or results in a stiff, inflexible fabric? Learn the simple tricks to create sharp color changes that look the same on both sides from the designer who developed this unusual technique. Using only half double crochet stitches, you will practice the “yarn flip” to avoid vertical stranding when changing colors, “late color changes” to create smooth diagonal lines, and yarn management when working with multiple colors. Open up a whole new world of crocheted colorwork!

Bling It On with Beads and More! 
Add beads and sparkle to your crochet. Learn various ways to add a little bling to your projects by incorporating beads or carry-along fibers. Learn why and when to use each technique and try tools to ease the process. Experiment with placing beads in different parts of your stitches to really make them pop and add pizzazz to any crochet project.

Crocheting in The Round - Choose Your Own Project
Learn the basics of crocheting in the round in this choose your own adventure class. Choose any pattern that interests you that is worked in circles such as a Hat, Bag, Rug, Teacozy, Cowl, or even a Shawl worked from the center out. We will discuss various ways of starting a project in the round including: working into a chain circle, the magic loop, reverse slip knot, joining in a ring without twisting, and working on two sides of the beginning chain. Then we will progress to increasing evenly to create a flat fabric with different size stitches, as well as the pros and cons of working in spirals vs. joining each round. 2 classes 

A Simple Change – Basic Color Changes in Reversible Intarsia
Learn what makes Reversible Intarsia different from other colorwork while crocheting a small 4 color coaster. Practice the basic color change that makes half double crochet stitches completely reversible in the new intarsia technique featured in Laurinda’s new book, Reversible Color Crochet. Class includes helpful tips for yarn management in intarsia and working color changes in half double crochets, while working with just 2 colors at a time.

Crochet A Flower Make'n'Take 
Choose from 3 different flowers to crochet, whether you have never crocheted before or are an experienced crocheter (supplies provided). 

Crochet Irish Roses
Learn the tricks for working the layered petals of an Irish Rose, one of the most common elements in traditional Irish crocheted lace. During the class you will practice crocheting in the round and working into stitches in the round below the previous round. You will complete one small 2-layer rose, and begin a larger 3-layer rose. These roses are also the first step in Ailee’s Wedding Shawl, which we will be doing as a Crochet Along throughout the rest of July. Or you can add these roses to a headband or garment.

Chunky Infinity Cowl
Learn the subtle twist needed to make a true infinity cowl. Working from the center out on both sides of the beginning chain, each round of this quick and cozy cowl forms a figure eight or infinity symbol. Worked in basic double and single crochet, beginners are welcome in this fun and easy class.

Asymmetrical Rowan Berry Shawl
Crochet this asymmetrical shawlette in fingering weight yarn on a large hook for a quick project with lovely drape and open lace. Beginning from the smaller end, the body of the shawl is worked at the same time as an edging of lacy shells trimmed in picots. The gradually increasing rows allow you to begin the shawl and practice the stitch pattern in class so you can easily finish the repeated rows at home. Perfect to gift or wear yourself this holiday season!

Flock Together Shawl
Practice basic crochet stitches with various weights and textures of yarns as you work this five-pointed shawl. Learn how much to increase on each round to create a flat fabric with various heights of stitches from single crochets to treble crochets. The Flock Together Shawl was designed especially to use Alexandra’s Crafts Birds of a Feather yarn, which consists of five different yarns all dyed together in the same colorway. The different fibers of the yarn absorb the dye differently, giving different shades that all work together.

Moss Stitch Fingerless Gloves 
Learn simple shaping and joining a new color in crochet with a cozy pair of fingerless gloves. The “moss stitch” is often used to create more stretch in crocheted fabric by working single crochets into chain one spaces. Working in the round, you will learn to add stitches to form the thumbhole, then use decreases to shape back down to the fingers, adding stripes along the bottom and top, as we create the first of a pair of fingerless gloves.

Ailee's Wedding Shawl 
Let's Crochet Along together, Ailee's Wedding Shawl, the design by Laurinda Reddig featured in the first Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Kit Club. The Pattern and Book will be available for purchase at Blizzard. The shawl takes just one skein of fingering weight yarn worked on a size I (5.5mm) crochet hook.

Cadha's Celtic Capelet 

Join us for our second Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Along to make this Capelet designed by Laurinda Reddig. There are 3 variations to suit all skill levels, and the designer will be here each week to answer your questions. The design is inspired by the story Unraveling: The New World (Part 2), from local author C. Jane Reid who will do a reading from her story on the 2nd night of the CAL. 


  1. Hi Laurinda, how can I join / where can I find details to the CAL for the Irish Rose that’s used in Ailee’s shawl? I’ve been stuck for several months .... which is fairly tragic since the shawl starts out with it 😂. I’m also interested in the Eternal Knot Cable class .... as I’m certain I’ll need a bit of help with that as well. Thank you, LInda Wasson, (also on FB messenger).
