Online Workshop 11/21: Knit a Giant Blanket

8 items left

Learn how to make a dreamy super thick and cozy knit blanket out of merino wool roving, plus tips and techniques for caring for these blankets. No knitting experience required! Knit and crochet designer Cara Corey will show you how to use a "table knitting" technique, forming the stitches with your hands rather than using knitting needles. 

In this class you will also learn:

  • How to source wool roving for a good price
  • How to graft ends together by needle felting
  • How to care for the wool, and use felting to prevent it from fuzzing too much
  • Where to buy giant knitting needles (if you decide you want them) and how to make your own giant needles out of PVC pipe

Choose from two booking options:

1. Supply your own materials! For this class, you will need 4 pounds wool roving or similar giant yarn (approximately 80 yards), a Felting needle, and a foam block (optional)

2. Purchase a blanket kit from us that includes:

  • 4 pounds merino wool roving
  • Felting needle for joining wool
  • Printed instructions

The yarn provided in the kit is enough wool roving to make a blanket approximately 30x50 inches in size with a lot of stretch. 

This online workshop takes place onSaturday 11/21 from 11 AM -1 PMPST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions prior to the workshop.
