Looking for a great holiday gift? You’ve probably seen these super soft, super snuggly blankets in your favorite home goods store for $75-$100 or more. Now you can make your own for a lot less, once you learn the technique. No knitting experience necessary!

 

Non-knitter Pam Robbins will step you through the process. First, she’ll show you how to cast on to start your project. Then, you’ll learn how to knit your blanket until it’s approximately 45”x 60”. Finally, Pam will show you how to bind off your piece to give it a professional look. And you’ll do all of this using just your hands; no needles required!

 

To make sure you’ll love the color(s) of your blanket, you’ll need to purchase your own yarn.

  • Please purchase your yarn as soon after registering as possible. If you wait until the last minute, the colors you want—or the yarn itself—may not be available.

  • You can purchase just one color, or different colors, of yarn, depending on how you'd like your blanket to look. 

  • You can often find deals on yarn at the big box stores, like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and JOANN.  

  • Please make sure you purchase super bulky (6) or jumbo yarn (7). Thinner yarns will not produce the same results.

To ensure students have ample space to work, class size is limited to 6 participants.
