Come make the squishiest and coziest blanket you'll ever feel in this fun two session workshop! Total beginners, somewhat beginners, and intermediate students are all welcome.
In the first session, you'll make a 1-color granny square from start to finish, and in the second session you'll learn how to make a 2-color square, and seam all your squares together!
You will learn how to: read a written pattern, follow a chart, chain, double crochet, work in the round, change colors, weave in ends, and seam.
You don't need to haveany prior crocheting experience to take this class! Ages 12+ are welcome.
Required materials: at least 64 yards total (32 yards each of two colors) of bulky or super bulky weight wool yarn (no dark colors, it's too hard to see!), US O (10-12 mm) or S (20 mm) hook, and a darning needle. For our whole blanket we used 14 balls of Loopy Mango Merino No. 5. See the pattern for exact quantities.
