DIY Hand Knit Chunky Blanket Class

UPDATED JANUARY CLASSES

Hand Knit Chunky Blanket Class
Anyone ages 13 and older

Join us for a fun evening of crafting and go home with the skills to create your very own Chunky Knit Blanket. All you need is yarn and your own two hands! These are adorable and make great gifts or keep it for yourself!

Suggested materials:

6 or 7 weight “Chunky” or “Jumbo” yarn in your choice of color and cost. More yarn equals larger throw blanket.There are many brands and price points available, so choose wisely. I do not recommend “loops” or “pom-poms”!

Number of Skeins Approximate Size of Throw

4 skeins Baby/Lap Throw 36×48 inches

6 skeins Small Adult Throw 40×60 inches

8 skeins Large Adult Throw 50×70 inches

Feel free to shop around for yarn! Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, and Joann all carry yarn and offer coupons on a regular basis. You have time to grab a skein or two a week if cost is a factor.

My sample piece is the Walmart Mainstays brand and was 5.88 per skein, and it works up quick and cozy in no time. I used about three skeins and measures 42×43 inches, a nice baby blanket or small lap/car blanket.
