Online Workshop 12/11: Knit a Giant Blanket

4 items left

This online workshop takes place on Saturday, December 11th, 11 AM - 2 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions before the workshop. 

Learn how to make a thick and cozy knit blanket out of merino wool roving, plus tips and techniques for caring for these blankets. No knitting experience is 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 needles. 

In this class, you will also learn:

  • How to source wool roving for a reasonable 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 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.
