We had so many happy knitters make blankets in 2016! Let's do it again in 2017. A handknit blanket might seem like a daunting task, but our block-a-month method makes it fun and very manageable. The whole idea is to have your handknit blanket ready by the holidays for gifting or snuggling.

Join Adrienne on the first Monday of each month (mostly) in 2017, and finish the year with a hand-knit blanket. Again, you only need to sign up and pay for one session at a time.  

The pattern for each block is unique, and many blocks will give you the opportunity to learn a new skill. You will use Cascade Eco or Eco+, a great yarn at a great price. Eco will knit up quickly and wears like iron. You can choose to design your blanket with one color or several colors. We do ask that you come in to pre-order your yarn in mid-December to make sure you get just the right color.

When your knitting is complete, Adrienne will show you how to seam up your blocks. And just like that, you have knitted a blanket.

Supplies:

4 skeins Cascade Eco or Eco+. Please pre-order your yarn in mid-December.

US9 24” circular needle

Stitch markers, cable needle
