Crochet at the Main Library's Knitting Club

Knitting is not the only needlework craft that is experiencing a renaissance. Crocheting is also back in style and the library has many new books with fun and easy projects. These are just a few of the titles; more can be found by searching Crocheting as a subject. Don’t know how to crochet? The Main Library’s monthly Knitting and Crochet Club for teens and adults has yarn and hooks for beginners to try out. Our next meeting is Saturday August 15 from 2-4 pm in the Creative Center, second floor. Call (415) 557-4497 for more information.
