Have you seen those gorgeous chunky blankets all over the place? If not, you will soon. Cooler weather is upon us! I'm a big fan of curling up on the couch with a soft blanket so when Amber Bounds, founder of Little King Art, approached me about a blanket workshop last year I said, "HELL YESSS!"
Little did we know those workshops would sell out in record speed and Amber would go on to be the go to Textile Workshop leader in the Charlotte area!
The chunky yarn she gives you in the workshop is made out of chenille and is about 1/2" in diameter. IT'S LIKE SQUEEZING A CLOUD! In the workshop, Amber shows you how to do the beginning knots and first braid, then another stitch to connect. After that we are off to the races quickly hand knitting the majority of the blanket with loops in loops. Once we get to the end of the blanket we cast off and do one more run of knots to end the blanket and BOOM! You have a soft squishy blanket in just a few HOURS!
So you are probably wondering... How can I do this? Well... you can come to Pachyderm Music Lab Wednesday, November 14th from 6:30 to 9:00. It's only $85 to make your own blanket!!! People pay $300+ for these blankets online.
