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.
This class is online and takes place over Zoom. You will be sent the Zoom login info 48-24 hours prior to class.
Cara uses the highest quality wool roving for her kits. This wool comes all the way from the UK. Therefore, we need to schedule this class 3 to 4 weeks in advance.
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
The yarn provided in the kit is enough wool roving to make a blanket approximately 30x50 inches in size with a lot of stretch.
Choose from 10 colors of wool. Please mention your second choice color in the comments at checkout in case your first choice is out of stock. Your kit will be mailed to you including:
- 4 pounds merino wool roving
- Felting needle for joining wool
- Printed instructions
- link to recorded video class
