If you are like me, you love a nice soft, cozy blanket to snuggle up with! For this beginner class, you will learn how to make a chunky lap/crib size blanket knitting only with your hands. No needles required! You will need to bring to class 3 skeins of jumbo weight blanket yarn totaling 96 yards. For beginners, I recommend Bernat Blanket Big Yarn, skein weight 300 g, length 32 yards. It is made of polyester and has a minimal “slide.” Bernat Blanket Big Yarn is readily available at craft stores and on the internet. There are 44 different colors to choose from. Feel free to mix and match. Whichever brand you choose, please check the label for skein weight and yardage. Once you learn how easy it is, you’ll be making custom blankets for your friends and family, too.
