Expectant Moms’ Circle, Crochet a Sling

Come be crafty, we’re crocheting slings from 10 am until 12 noon!  Our Expectant Moms’ Circle meets our annual Crochet a Sling workshop today.  Of course you don’t need to be crafty to come hang out and chat with other moms.  But if you’d like to try your hand at a sling…  An experienced mom and grandmother are are teaming up to help us crochet cotton slings — perfect for hot summer days.  This is a great project for expectant moms or expectant grand-moms and aunts, no experience necessary.  If you enjoy wearing your baby and could use an extra sling, by all means pull up a chair.  recycled-cotton-yarn-lg

You’ll need the following materials:

2 skeins or balls of worsted weight cotton (Lion or Kitchen or similar brand, 236 yards, 5 ounces each — total of 472 yards in 2 balls).  This really does need to be cotton, not wool or acrylic.

Size Q crochet hook (this is a very large hook).

Hope to see you in the Cafe!
