Take your blanket making skills to the NEXT LEVEL with this Advanced BYOY* class! Amber Bounds, local fiber artist and owner of Little King Art, will teach how to create stripes, a cable-knit stitch, basketweave stitch and a chained edge on your blanket. You’ll also get a better understanding on how to catch up dropped stitches and of course Amber will review the basic hand knitting skills for a refresher.
*We recommend you have some Hand Knitting experience for this class.
Bonus: You’ll receive a handout with guided instructions and tips and tricks, so you can recall the steps later if you need to finish your blanket or you want to make more blankets on your own.
*Bring Your Own Yarn and we will provide the rest! We look forward to creating with you!
*Yarn size suggestions: We suggest bringing a Super Bulky or Jumbo size yarn, however make sure the yarn size is at least a half inch thick.
*Our favorite yarn to make a full blanket are listed below:
-2-3 skeins of Couture Jazz BIG BALL 500G
-9-11 skeins of Couture Jazz 100G
-4-5 skeins of Bernat Blanket BIG yarn (at Michaels only)
