New York, New Yo...
We see a lot of people crocheting and knitting on the subway in New York City on winter days. This week we’re delving into the basics of crochet. How many of our members crochet? Knit? If you’re new to crochet, David, our Coordinator, Social Media and Member Service extraordinaire, has created a simple tutorial which will boost you from novice to pro in no time. We think it sounds so fun to cozy up and learn a new technique, and with crochet, you can bring your projects anywhere! Modeled by David’s Mother… how sweet!

Materials: Size US P-15/11.5 mm hook, and White/Gold, thin cotton and acrylic yarn. Utilized here are two different skeins of yarn, crocheted at the same time.
The completed shawl measured 31.5×37 (inches). Some people familiar with crochet or knitting may ask what the gauge is, but there is no gauge. The finished measurements are totally up to you.
